(WXYZ) — Two students at Central Michigan University have tested positive for COVID-19.

The university says these are the first confirmed cases directly related to the CMU community.

One student traveled to a different state for spring break and returned to a campus residence hall. On Thursday, the university said the student had been on campus in the last 24 hours.

The other student returned to a permanent residence in another city, the university says.

The student on campus is now isolated and will return to their permanent residence Friday.

CMU campus leaders are working to investigate anyone who may have been in close contact with the student.
