SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego State University will begin testing all students who live on campus for COVID-19, the school said Tuesday.

According to the university, the testing will start on September 16. After the initial phase of testing, the school will begin testing students at random.

“Following the initial phase of benchmark testing for all students in residence this week, we will then launch random testing for the on-campus housing population. During each round of testing, a set of individuals from each residential community group will be randomly sampled to be re-tested,” the school said.

The news comes as 648 students tested positive or presumptive positive for the virus.

According to SDSU, 644 students have so far tested positive for the virus. Four students are presumptive positive.

So far, no faculty or staff have tested positive for coronavirus.
