OXFORD, Ohio — The Butler County General Health District is investigating several COVID-19 cases in Miami University students with links to off-campus social gatherings.
The health district said the gatherings happened from May 8-16, 2020 in Oxford, Ohio and the health district is contacting anyone believed to have been in close contact with infected people.
If you or someone you know was at an off-campus gathering in Oxford on one of those dates, you are asked to self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days.
Anyone who had potential exposure should stay home and limit time with friends, family and roommates.
Should someone develop symptoms, they are asked to call their healthcare provider or emergency room for instructions.
“We want everyone potentially exposed to be aware so they can self-monitor and get tested quickly to reduce potential further spread. Should you receive a call from the Health District, we encourage your complete cooperation,” said Jennifer Bailer, the health commissioner for the Butler County General Health District.
