Oklahoma State University announced Saturday that 23 people in an off-campus sorority house have tested positive for COVID-19.

The test was a rapid antigen test that was performed at an off-campus health care facility.

"Due to the nature of this situation, the entire chapter house is in isolation or quarantine and will be prohibited from leaving the facility,"  the university said in a statement. "One member of the sorority who lives elsewhere is among those who tested positive and will also remain in isolation. All involved are currently being monitored by OSU and Payne County Health Department and contact tracing is being conducted to further protect the campus community. The services of a third-party contractor have been enlisted to disinfect the facility and will do so again after the two-week isolation and quarantine period."

This story will be updated as more information is learned.
