37 More UCF Students Test Positive for COVID-19

2.8 percent of 1,322.
That’s 37 University of Central Florida students who have tested positive for COVID-19 since university housing move-in began on Saturday.

What You Need To Know

  • All students living on campus must get tested.
  • They are being asked to live in “relative quarantine” until they get results.
  • Should be “mindful of mask-wearing and physical distancing.”

It’s all part of UCF’s overall reopening plan.

The university told Spectrum News students are moving in over a 16-day period that ends on August 23. Each move is being scheduled by appointment to maximize physical distancing, and students have also been offered a delayed move-in option.

Everyone is being asked to avoid large gatherings where COVID-19 can be transmitted.

UCF is aware of 540 total cases but says there has been a two-week downward trend.

In an email sent to Spectrum News, Associate VP of UCF Student Health Services Dr. Michael Deichen said 185 of them were self-reported by students, staff members and faculty.
