The student has had limited access to campus and the exposure risk is low. The student is isolating off campus and recovering, SDSU stated on their website.
Student Health Services is monitoring the case with county partners. Close contacts of the student have already been identified, and are being directly notified through contract tracing.
In an effort to be proactive, the university is providing information and guidance related to MPX to help ensure that students, faculty, and staff are well informed about prevention and symptoms.
