CHICO, Calif. – Chico State officials announced 24 new COVID-19 cases involving individuals who spent time in two campus locations.

There are now a total of 102 cases linked to the university. Officials at Chico State said the 24 new cases involve individuals who spent time at Sutter Dining and Sutter Hall – their last day in both buildings was on Aug. 31.

"This number 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's website. "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."

This comes after health officials sent out a message Wednesday urging individuals to cancel or postpone gatherings over the Labor Day weekend.

“People who continue going to parties and mixing with others who do not live in their immediate household, place their friends, roommates, significant others, co-workers, and family at risk for getting COVID-19,” stated Dr. Bernstein, Butte County Public Health Officer. “The only way for our community and our economy to start to reopen is to reduce the spread – and the health and economic consequences – of the COVID-19 pandemic by preventing the spread of the virus.”

Chico State students have 48-hours remaining to get off-campus. Students were told Sunday to vacate on-campus dorms because of a surge in coronavirus cases.

If they need to stay longer, university officials say they are working on accommodations for students who need housing for the school year. Those who do not leave by Sept. 6 will have to pay a daily fee.

Butte County has a total of 2,254 confirmed cases and a total of 1,474 stem from Chico, according to BCPH's COVID-19 chart.
