Cleveland State University (CSU) announced late Saturday night that its women’s head basketball coach has tested positive for the coronavirus.
This is the university's first confirmed case. It has been confirmed by Cuyahoga County health officials.
“It has been a very challenging couple of days,” said the coach, Chris Kielsmeier, in the university's statement. “I am beginning to feel better and look forward to getting back to 100%.”
CSU President Harlan Sands praised Kielsmeier for alerting the school quickly and staying at home, saying his actions "were helpful in limiting exposure to the CSU community.”
The university is working with health officials to conduct contact tracing, and are asking those who have been in contact with Kielsmeier to self-quarantine.
