March 24 -- Statement regarding communication of positive COVID-19 cases connected to ISU

The leadership of Indiana State University understands the anxiety and concern of parents, students, and the entire campus community when, as happened Monday, there’s an announcement of a positive COVID-19 case connected to ISU.

Members of the campus community, understandably, wanted more information. But there is a legal limit to what ISU may disclose. Personal health information is subject to federal and state privacy laws, including HIPAA, and student educational records are protected by FERPA.

Local health departments are responsible for investigating and notifying the people with whom the infected individual had close contact. We ask the campus community not to speculate on anyone who might have had a positive test for COVID-19. Thank you for respecting the privacy of members of the ISU community.
