Spring breakers from University of Tampa test positive for coronavirus

Spring breakers from University of Tampa test positive for coronavirus

Last week, a viral video featured some of the partying students defending their "right" to enjoy their spring breaks.

"Just a day later, the school confirmed that five students, who were part of a larger group traveling together during spring break, had tested positive".

"We sincerely wish our students, and any others who may be affected, a full and rapid recovery", UT posted on Twitter Saturday night.

With the beaches still open, students refused to be deterred from their Spring Break celebrations and countless interviews have captured the revelers stating they're not anxious about the outbreak and refusing to let it get in the way of the party, even though many bars and restaurants at the beach were closed in response to the outbreak. The university is also encouraging people to practice social distancing, self-isolate as appropriate, and cooperate with current public health guidance and officials.
