TAMPA (WFLA) — Six University of Tampa students are recovering after testing positive for COVID-19 after spring break, the school said.

The university said one of the six students was tested at school after coming back from an international trip. The student is reportedly self-isolating off campus and has not been hospitalized.

The other five students were traveling with other UT students during spring break before testing positive. Four of the five students returned to the campus after the break where they are self-isolating. None of the students have been hospitalized.

The school did not say where the students went during their break.

“We sincerely wish our students, and any others who may be affected, a full and rapid recovery,” UT posted on social media Saturday night.

The university switched to online classes only on March 17. UT’s spring break was March 8 through 15.
