SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego State University Saturday ordered all on-campus residents to stay at home over Labor Day Weekend amid an increase of coronavirus cases tied to the university.

The university sent an email to students who live on campus, advising them to stay “in their current residences except for essential needs.”

The “Stay at Home” order is in effect from 10 p.m. Saturday, September 5, 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.

“Violations of this order may result in disciplinary consequences,” the school continued, although no specificities were given as to the consequences for violating the order.

The announcement comes as the university has, so far, experienced 184 confirmed and probable COVID-19 cases since the start of the fall semester.
