Christopher Latham, the public relations and marketing director for Athens State University, tells us three employees have tested positive for the virus.

He says they learned about the first case last Friday and the other two this week.

Latham tells us all three staff members were not showing symptoms.

He says they decided to get tested because they knew others off campus who had the virus.

Latham says the staff members and anyone they may have come in contact with are off campus
