“I guess you probably know why I want to talk to you, right?” the officer asks.
The officer tells the student to disperse the crowd gathered at the house and finally asks to see his identity. After scanning it, he calls the student.
“I’ve never seen it before, is there a computer entry that you tested positive for Covid?” the officer asks.
“Yes,” the student replied, adding, “That was it a week ago.”
The officer asks the student if he should be quarantined and the student said that was the reason he was at home.
“Do you have other people here and are you positive about Covid? Do you see the problem?” the officer asks.
Other people at home were also tested positive for the virus, the student told the officer.
“We are trying to prevent this, do you understand? We want to keep this city open,” the officer said with a sigh. “… So do not quarantine if you mingle with other people.”
Six people, five of whom lived in the house, were reported, according to the police report. The Oxford Police Department told CNN in an email that the fines for the reports start at $ 500.
Five of those listed are listed on the University of Miami as students. The police report shows that the sixth person was identified as a student who had moved in with his parents and visited over the weekend.
Colleges fought to limit parties
The University of Miami declined to comment, citing federal privacy laws, but said students who violate quarantine or the city ordinance for mass rallies would face disciplinary action.
