CHICO, Calif. – The total number of positive coronavirus cases identified on Chico State’s campus since the beginning of August now sits at 67.

University officials posted on their website Tuesday evening that they had confirmed 31 new cases of COVID-19. The cases involve individuals who spent time in five different on-campus locations.

However, university officials warned that It’s important to keep in mind the COVID-19 test results can take up to a week, meaning there may be a number of days between individuals’ last time on campus.

According to Chico State’s website, the following locations are where people who tested positive with COVID-19 had been on-campus:

  • Butte Station—last day in building was August 26
  • Shasta Hall— last day in building was August 27
  • Sutter Hall— last day in building was August 29
  • Whitney Hall—last day in building was September 1
  • Wildcat Store—last day in building was August 26

The total number of cases linked to the university represents the total count of campus-specific cases over time, but does not reflect the number of currently active cases or number of individuals who have recovered, according to Chico State officials. The Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) tracks general “active” and “recovered” information for the county, but is unable to provide details for University-specific cases.

December began on a beautiful note for northern California with plentiful sunshine, seasonably cool lows and warmer than average highs. Much of wednesday will be similar to today, but clouds will stream into our sky late in the day.
