The University of Texas and Austin Public Health officials say 28 students tested positive for the Coronavirus following a spring break trip to Mexico. The students were part of a group of 70 who chartered a flight to Cabo San Lucas.
Austin Public Health officials say a group of 70 in their 20s chartered a plane for round-trip flights to Cabo San Lucas about ten days ago, the Austin American-Statesman నివేదించారు. Some of those returned on commercial flights. Officials say 28 of the people from the trip subsequently tested positive for COVID-19. Four of those who tested positive showed no symptoms.
Austin Public Health, UT Health Austin, and University Health Services contacted every spring breaker who traveled on the charter flight, the Austin newspaper reported. Officials are in the process of contacting passengers on the commercial flights taken by the other travelers.
University officials say they are aware of 38 students and seven faculty members who either tested positive, are presumed positive, or who self-reported.
ప్రకారంగా Austin American-Statesman, many of the students utilized a company called JusCollege for travel arrangements. The company specializes in organizing trips for students.
“In the weeks and days leading to spring break, the company sent multiple emails to UT students, saying there was no danger from COVID-19 and the refund policy on the trip packages — which students say were about $2,000 — remained nonrefundable,” the newspaper reported.
“We’re currently in our 2nd week of Cabo and have had almost 5000 travelers, all with no issues,” the company said to a UT student in March 12 email obtained by the American-Statesman. “Flights have been fully operational and we have had nearly 100% turn out. Our events are completely operational with zero impact from COVID-19 thus far.”
The company did not respond to requests for comment. A March 25 announcement, however, said the company has postponed spring break trips and is working on credits or partial refunds for those who can’t attend the new trip dates.
