Quarantine lifted for Centre College students who traveled to China


DANVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – Centre College says its quarantine of a handful of students who had recently traveled to China is lifted.

The college’s Chief Communications Officer Michael Strysick says the 14-day quarantine ended Tuesday. He says all students are back to their normal activities and everyone is in good health.

Strysick says last weekend Centre President John Roush and his wife, Susie, brought doughnuts and gingerbread men for the quarantined students to lift their spirits. He says the pair delivered the baked goods to the students “at a safe distance.”

The students were quarantined after the college received a letter from the State Department of Public Health recommending it quarantine anyone who had recently traveled from China for 14 days.

The precaution was taken due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak that started in Wuhan, China.
