SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego State University says 400 students have confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus.

The university said Tuesday that, since August 24, 396 students have tested positive for COVID-19. Four other students have probable cases of the virus.

The update comes one day after the school extended its stay-at-home order for on-campus residents through September 14. The order was originally set to expire Tuesday.


"Some students who have tested positive have fully recovered and are no longer symptomatic. Also, SDSU has no reports of any hospitalizations as a result of any positive cases. However, the COVID-19 risk remains within our community, and researchers are still trying to understand potential rebound illness for those who have tested positive but have since recovered," the school previously said.

Students are advised to call 2-1-1 or their medical providers and stay home if they feel ill. They can also contact Student Health Services at 619-594-4325 (Monday through Friday) or the Nurse Call Line at 858-225-3105 (after hours and during weekends and holidays). Testing is available by appointment only and can be scheduled online here.
