Shippensburg University closes the month of August with three positive COVID-19 confirmed cases for the month. The three students who tested positive are fulfilling their 10 days of isolation.
The SU Case Investigation Team reviewed and notified appropriate persons within the Shippensburg University community to advise of possible contact, and next steps, including self-quarantining for 14 days. Those individuals were allowed to choose to quarantine in their residence hall room, their off-campus address or their home address.
The University will be inviting a random selection of student to participate in Asymptomatic Testing beginning this week. These tests will require 48-72 hours for results. If a student is invited, they will receive an e-mail from the SU COVID Office. A different sampling of students will be invited to participate each week.

All members of the Shippensburg family are urged to visit the Raider Respect webpage to download the Campus Shield self-monitoring app and information on COVID-19 exposure, positive COVID-19 cases and case investigation.
