CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WBTV) - The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has revealed another cluster of COVID-19 on campus.

This time, the cluster was reported at the Sigma Nu fraternity

This comes after two other clusters have already been confirmed on campus -- one at Ehringhaus Hall and the other at Granville Towers.

A cluster is at least five cases reported within a 14 day period that is likely linked to each other.

Classes have already started but this news of new clusters has left students on edge.

The news of the COVID-19 clusters comes during the same week a complaint was filed on behalf of University of North Carolina (UNC) faculty and staff, in a lawsuit claiming that UNC employees across the state are at a heightened risk of contracting COVID-19 because they are required to return to campuses that are reopening to students.
