CHICO, Calif. - Some students have been lucky enough to find a new place to live after receiving a week's notice to leave the campus. Other students aren't as lucky and fear about returning home with the virus.
Chico State confirmed 11 more Coronavirus cases today tied to the campus, bringing the total up to 78.
This comes as students prepare to vacate their campus housing.
Chico State students are upset that after just two weeks into the semester they're being forced to leave, others are scared to catch the virus, but some students have nowhere else to go.
"I think it's kind of irresponsible to send everyone home," said Chico State student, Isabella Theus.
Some students are still confused as to why in-person classes were even offered to begin with, and they think it should've been done differently.
"I agree, they should've tested us first thing when we get here because I bet people came with COVID already," said Theus.
"All parts of California just like meshed together in this gross hotspot of Whitney Hall," said Chico State student, Sicily Joseph jokingly.
Whitney Hall along with five other campus locations like Butte Station, Sutter Hall, Sutter Dining Hall, Shasta Hall, and The Wildcat Store all had a COVID-19 positive individual inside its doors within the last few days.
"Are you guys scared of that by chance? -- I am. I am too," said the two students.
And that makes students like, Joesph Cannizzaro, relive what he saw in the dorm hallways.
"And I know a lot of people in there are really getting it, and I've seen them move out throughout the week," he said.
"Yeah I got a place, but it was really confusing trying to find roommates like a day later," Cannizzaro said intensely.
Some students are moving out with places to go.
"We got really lucky, but some people aren't as lucky and they have to go back home," said Theus.
But going home isn't so easy, for some students, passing the virus on is something they're scared of.
"No, I have to find a place to quarantine first so that's the tricky part. It's one of my biggest fears," said fearfully Chico State student Jade Santillan.
"My mom and dad they're kind of older," she said. "So it's like, I'm just scared to get them really sick."
Students tell Action News Now the university is still charging students $300 in tuition, so students are trying to leave as soon as possible.
