PLATTEVILLE (WKOW) -- Six students who recently arrived at UW-Platteville after traveling to China are being monitored for possible coronavirus infection.

The students arrived on campus Jan. 21 after being in Wuhan, China. Two of the students are Wuhan residents.

The two residents were screened for coronavirus at O’Hare International Airport.

None of the six students exhibit signs of coronavirus, but as a precaution, their temperatures are being taken on a regular basis.

The students are currently living together in a residence hall, but are not under any quarantine or isolation.

UW-Platteville authorities have been in contact with Grant County Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and are following all national and international protocols.

"The University of Wisconsin-Platteville expresses its deepest concerns and support to the people of Wuhan China, especially those at the South-Central University for Nationalities in Wuhan, China, with whom the university has a long, successful partnership," the university said in a statement.
