Two employees are the first to test positive for coronavirus at UNLV, the university reported today.

One employee notified UNLV they had tested positive in another state, according to the school’s website. They were in self-isolation and receiving care, the university said.

“The individual, who has been primarily working remotely for an extended period of time, was last on campus March 10 and indicated they did not have contact with anyone on campus at that time,” the website said.

The other employee traveled out of state on university business early this month and was last on campus March 11, the website said.

The individual was self-isolating and receiving care, the school said. Individuals who have come into contact with the person have been notified, UNLV said.
