FERGUSON, Mo. — A St. Louis Community College Student has tested positive for COVID-19.

The student attends the Florissant Valley campus and was last on campus March 13.

"While this is the first case confirmed in the STLCC community, we are aware of the additional cases being reported in this region and remind everyone that we all have a role in slowing the spread of COVID-19," the college said.
