Riley County health officials are reporting four new outbreaks associated with sororities at K-State.

The sororities were identified as: Alpha Delta Pi (6), Alpha Xi Delta (6), Chi Omega (5) and Kappa Delta (5).

All residents of those Greek houses have been asked to quarantine for 14 days.

"The leaders of local fraternities and sororities are cooperating with health department staff, but we have concerns that the safety messages are not reaching all of the members," said Health Officer Julie Gibbs. "It is imperative that anyone who has had close contact with a positive patient, or who is sick, remains in quarantine or isolation and takes personal responsibility for their actions."

In an effort to slow the spread of the virus, all event permits associated with any fraternity and sorority organizations between Aug. 27 and Sept. 10 were canceled or revoked.
