University of Miami student with coronavirus still holds party at house, reports say

OXFORD, Ohio — Police breaking up a party attended by University of Miami students last weekend discovered the person hosting it was “quarantining” because he had tested positive for the coronavirus a week earlier.

WCPO Channel 9 reports six students at the party Saturday afternoon were cited for violating coronavirus orders. There 20 students inside the house when officers arrived, WCPO reports.

When police began questioning a student who lived in the house, they learned he had tested positive for the coronavirus. Police asked him if he was supposed to be in quarantine and he answered, “Yeah. That’s why I’m at my house,” WCPO reports.

The student initially told officers that everyone attending the party had tested positive, WLWT Channel 5 reports. He then said it was likely two students had tested positive, WCPO reports.

“That’s what we’re trying to prevent. We want to keep this town open,” the officer tells the student. “You’re not quarantining if you’re mixing with other people.”

The university has been struggling with an outbreak of the virus, with more than 1,000 students testing positive during the past two weeks. Still, the school plans to resume in-person classes on Sept. 21, Fox 19 reports.

The university still expects the on-campus population to be reduced by about 40 percent as some students use remote learning, reports say.
