CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Six members of City Colleges of Chicago have tested positive for the coronavirus, school Chancellor Juan Salgado said Tuesday in an email to students.

Salgado did not say if the cases were students or staff.

These cases include two members from Harold Washington College, two members from Malcolm X College, a member from Daley College, and a member from Truman College.

Salgado said the school will no longer alert students and staff about any more members who contract COVID-19.

“Beginning today, March 31, 2020 – which is 14 days after CCC facilities were closed and after the last day when an individual who may have been exposed at a CCC facility would develop symptoms – we will no longer notify the CCC community regarding a community member being diagnosed with COVID-19, except as otherwise directed by [Chicago Department of Public Health],” Salgado wrote.

In-person classes have been suspended since March 16, and have since moved to online learning.
