CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming has announced seven confirmed cases of COVID-19 among its school community after it started the new school year online earlier this week.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported that none of the cases were on campus and included three employees and two students living off campus in Laramie, one student living off campus in Casper and one student living in Colorado. The university began its fall semester online Monday with plans to return to some in-person classes by Sept. 7 before welcoming back all students by Sept. 28, officials said. Students will then finish off the semester remotely after the Thanksgiving holiday.
