Mizzou Journalism Students Monitored for Coronavirus

(Columbia) A group of University of Missouri Journalism School students recently attended the same conference as someone who tested positive for the coronavirus.

The organization Investigative Reporters and Editors says the patient has mild symptoms after spending a few days late last week at the conference in New Orleans.

Whether anyone else at the conference is showing symptoms is unknown.

M.U. and other local schools have not cancelled classes due to coronavirus concerns but they say they are working closely with health officials.
