10:05 AM PT — 9/11 — The woman who partied and bragged about having COVID-19 apparently belonged to the university’s Alpha Phi sorority … or at least she used to, ’cause a spokesperson for the sorority tells TMZ the student has resigned. The spokesperson said, “The behavior in that video is appalling. When chapter leadership learned of this member’s behavior, the chapter immediately initiated judicial proceedings. The member has since chosen to resign outright.”
The sorority says it will fully cooperate with university officials and will do all it can to support contact tracing to protect the other students. The sorority will also ensure those who were exposed are immediately quarantined. The spokesperson added, “We expect our members to do their part to minimize the spread of the coronavirus, and behavior like this will not be tolerated.”
Colleges are having serious problems with the coronavirus — Texas Tech says it’s investigating a viral video showing a young woman at a house party flippantly admitting she has COVID-19.
In the video, which is spreading on social media, the woman says people at the shindig keep asking her if she has coronavirus and her response is alarming … “Yes, I f**king have COVID, the whole f**king world has COVID.”
The young lady then turns the camera around to show everyone drinking and partying near her without face coverings and suggests “all of these people have COVID.”
The university’s dean of students says they received a report and are aware of the video, and it’s being investigated.
It’s unclear if the woman in the video actually has COVID-19 or if she is enrolled at TTU. The Twitter account that posted the clip says some of the party people are Tech students.
Texas Tech says it has 612 active coronavirus cases as of Wednesday, including 571 cases involving students, and university president Lawrence Schovanec attributed the rise in positive cases to off-campus parties and social gatherings.
Didn’t we all see this coming?!?
