Of the 74 new cases in that 24-hour period, 37 of those are in the city of San Luis Obispo, and seven are among Cal Poly residents living on-campus.

Cal Poly is also increasing testing among off-campus students who are in the Greek community and in the neighborhoods where clusters of cases have been identified.
