INDIANAPOLIS — An Indiana University student who is currently not studying on campus in Indiana has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Indiana University shared the information on their continually updated coronavirus page Friday. The school says the student in question is currently being isolated in their home country and will remain there to receive care.

The Kelley School of Business student has not been on the IU campus or even in the United States in 2020, according to the release.
