After Spring Break partying through pandemic, college students now testing positive for coronavirus

College students in Florida have tested positive for the coronavirus after returning from spring break.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, young people were seen in Miami and elsewhere in Florida defiantly celebrating Spring Break and St. Patrick’s Day despite increasingly alarming reports about the domestic spread of coronavirus, which causes COVID-19.

WFLA now reports that five University of Tampa students have tested positive for the virus. According the report, the five students had traveled together, as part of a larger group, for a Spring Break celebration, but University of Tampa officials have not said where they had traveled.

It is also not clear if the students lived in dorms or off-campus, though the school is no longer holding in-person classes and began school-wide remote learning on March 17.

“We sincerely wish our students, and any others who may be affected, a full and rapid recovery,” the University of Tampa said in a Twitter post this weekend.

The infected students are reportedly expected to recover.
