Southern California’s Chapman University is dealing with a coronavirus outbreak among students living on and off campus.

The university’s website shows 17 students living in housing on the campus in the city of Orange and 19 living off-campus nearby tested positive for COVID-19 as of Oct. 12. An additional person’s living situation was listed as unknown.

The private university says it follows Centers for Disease Control quarantine guidelines and students can be provided campus housing for quarantine period.

Chapman plans to transition to in-person instruction on Oct. 19 but will not require students and faculty to return to campus, so some of those classes may remain online.
