MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A Troy University student and faculty member have tested positive for COVID-19, or coronavirus, university officials confirmed Wednesday.

The university has been in contact with the Alabama Department of Public Health about both cases, and ADPH will investigate and contact anyone who may be at risk to exposure.
