SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — San Diego State's coronavirus cases among students continued to rise over the weekend, spiking more than 100 cases in two days.

On Sunday, the college reported 286 confirmed or probable COVID-19 cases among on- and off-campus students. SDSU had reported 184 cases among the student population on Friday.

The lastest jump in cases comes one day after school officials issued a stay-at-home order for all on-campus students through Tuesday, September 8 at 6 a.m.


“At that time, this order will be revisited and updated as necessary,” the university said of the order’s expected expiration.

SDSU added that, "violations of this order may result in disciplinary consequences."

The school moved all classes online less than a week ago out of an abundance of caution after cases spiked. SDSU started the fall semester with about 200 classes in-person, many of which were lab classes that were determined to only be possible in person.

The campus is urging students to avoid any gatherings throughout the weekend, isolate and quarantine if they feel ill, and wear a face covering and practice good hygiene.
