28 University of Texas Students Test Positive for Coronavirus After Going to Spring Break in Mexico

Over two dozen students have tested positive for coronavirus from the University of Texas after going to Mexico for spring break.

Roughly two weeks prior, 70 university students chartered a plane to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, the Austin Public Health Department confirmed in a press release on Tuesday (March 31).

28 of those students have now tested positive, with four of them not showing any symptoms.

Some of the students also returned to the United States on commercial flights, Austin officials confirmed. The positive individuals are now self-isolating, and the rest are under quarantine and being monitored and tested.

“Austin-Travis County residents should follow CDC’s travel recommendations indicating travelers avoid all non-essential international travel. A leisure vacation of any kind is not considered essential,” the Austin officials said in the statement.

Many celebrities have come forward with their positive coronavirus diagnosis to help urge the public to take social distancing seriously.
