CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — An off-campus party under investigation at Austin Peay after an attendee tests positive for COVID-19.

The University says the non-school-sanctioned event was held by a student organization.

APSU officials say they're looking into the incident and that the people involved could be disciplined because the party had more than 30 people, which doesn't align with university protocols.

In the meantime, Vanderbilt University officials are dealing with what they call a small number of positive cases within its football and soccer programs - and those students are being isolated.
