Two Penn State students who were traveling abroad have tested positive for COVID-19, the university’s president, Eric Barron, said.
Barron was speaking to the Board of Trustees Thursday morning during a telephone meeting.
A Penn State spokesman said the students have not been on campus. He said one student is back in the United States and has been asymptomatic. The other is still abroad. The university, he said, is “doing whatever we can to support the student, who we understand is feeling better.”
