University of California, Davis officials released a statement Thursday reporting three students have been placed in isolation due to the new coronavirus, Fox News reported.

UC Davis’ chancellor and vice chancellor told students and staff that all three have been living in student housing at Kearney Hall. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has already begun testing one of the students for the COVID-19 virus, according to UC Davis. That person has been moved off campus, according to Fox News.

UC Davis says the other two students are not showing symptoms of the virus.

“We do not believe there is any reason for anyone to overreact. Any person who is in isolation and asymptomatic is not considered contagious,” Thursday’s statement read.
