CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The office of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi president Kelly Miller has made the announcement that a university employee has tested positively for COVID-19.

The employee has not been on campus since March 12, but has direct contact with another employee outside of work.

In an abundance of caution, employees in the impacted departments have been notified. Additionally, supervisors from both employees’ areas have been informed and will help identify anyone else who may have come into contact with these individuals. In the event that any other employees test positive for COVID-19, Human Resources will provide notice to impacted departments.

"I understand that this announcement will cause concern, and I want to assure you that we will continue working closely with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Nueces County Health Department, continuing to follow all recommendations," Miller said. "Since the national COVID-19 outbreak began, all buildings and high-volume touchpoints on campus have been and will continue to be cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis."
