BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Several LSU Greek chapters received notices telling members to get tested for COVID-19 after wastewater testing results found high traces of the virus.

A spokesperson from LSU said students in these LSU Greek chapters must get tested within 48 hours at an on-campus testing location. Students are required to provide test results to the university by 6 p.m. on Aug. 20 and those testing positive will have to isolate.

The wastewater testing method began last fall and is used to isolate areas on campus where outbreaks could occur.
