Quarantine lockdown for Cal State Long Beach campus

All students on the California State University, Long Beach campus are under a quarantine lockdown and in-person instruction was suspended Monday after five students who met off-campus earlier this month tested positive for the coronavirus.

The lockdown has been in place since Saturday, a day after campus officials learned that a number of students met off-campus in violation of the school’s COVID-19 guidelines, officials said in a statement.

“We became aware of a number of students who have not heeded our guidance related to COVID-19 precautions and congregated socially off-campus. Five of these students have now tested positive for the illness,” university president Jane Close Conoley said in a statement, hinting at possible discipline. “We will be investigating student conduct issues and addressing them appropriately.”

Four of the students who contracted the virus live in residence halls on campus. A fifth lives off campus, said university officials.
