University of Notre Dame President John Jenkins tests positive for COVID-19
Jenkins had been in self-isolation after he went to the White House for Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination, but did not wear a mask or maintain social distancing.
Jenkins issued an apology for not wearing a mask and self-isolated upon his return.
On Friday, the university released a statement about the positive test result.
This week, Jenkins learned a colleague he has been in regular contact with tested positive for COVID-19.
Father Jenkins was tested and found to be positive too.
"My symptoms are mild and I will continue work from home. The positive test is a good reminder for me and perhaps for all of how vigilant we need to be," Jenkins said in a statement.
