MANCHESTER, Ind. (WFFT) -- The president of Manchester University says they are arranging for a deep cleaning of the Fort Wayne campus "out of an abundance of caution" to prevent the possible spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus.
In a letter to students obtained by FOX 55 News, President Dave McFadden writes that a student on a rotation assignment last week might have been in the same location as a patient who tested presumptive positive for the virus.
The letter says that student returned home to Fort Wayne and self-quarantined.
UPDATE: The school said Wednesday that it determined the student did not have contact with the patient, but they will continue to clean all high-touch surfaces out of caution.
A school spokesperson told FOX 55 that the school will bring in night crews to deep-clean the campus so it won't have to close.
At the North Manchester campus, McFadden wrote that the custodial staff has been using hospital-grade cleaners in residence halls and will extend those procedures to buildings across campus.
