Cal Poly is seeing more positive COVID-19 cases among students.

The university reported two new cases for students living on campus Monday and 23 for students living off-campus.

There are currently 39 students in isolation due to COVID-19 and more than 1,100 told to quarantine due to possible exposure.

Students living on-campus were asked to leave by this past weekend to finish the quarter at home.

Those isolating or in quarantine can leave once given the OK by health officials.

Campus Health & Wellbeing has conducted nearly 15,000 COVID-19 tests since July.

Of those, 239 positive cases have been identified in on-campus students and 464 in those living off-campus.

San Luis Obispo County added 204 new COVID-19 cases since last Friday. It was not immediately clear if the latest cases at Cal Poly were reflected in the county's most recent COVID-19 update.

County health officials have said that the county would still be in the highest COVID-19 tier without the recent spike in cases at Cal Poly.
