Harvard’s president and his wife test positive for coronavirus
Harvard President Lawrence S. Bacow said Tuesday that he and his wife have tested positive for coronavirus.
Bacow said that he and his wife were unsure how they contracted the virus, but began experiencing symptoms on Sunday, including fevers, chills and muscle aches.
“We will be taking the time we need to rest and recuperate during a two-week isolation at home,” Bacow said in a statement, per CNN. “I am blessed with a great team, and many of my colleagues will be taking on more responsibility over the next few weeks as Adele and I focus on just getting healthy.”
Harvard was among the first universities to move classes online and close down student housing.
