EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — The University of Oregon is reporting that dozens of students have tested positive for COVID-19.

The university's website showed on Monday that 57 coronavirus cases had been confirmed in the previous four days alone. \

Officials say all the cases involve students, but only one of the students lives in on-campus housing. The rest live off campus.

The surge in cases comes at the beginning of the school year.

The Register-Guard also reported Monday that four people were cited by city and university police on Saturday for throwing a party for more than 100 mostly college-age people off campus.

The University of Oregon has reported a total of 200 cases since June 1.
