Entrance to campus of Brigham Young University.

Officials at Brigham Young University’s campus in Idaho are “deeply troubled” by accounts of students who may have intentionally exposed themselves to COVID-19.

According to a statement released by the school, some individuals are contracting the disease in an attempt to get paid for plasma that contains COVID-19 antibodies.

“The university condemns this behavior and is actively seeking evidence of any such conduct among our student body. Students who are determined to have intentionally exposed themselves or others to the virus will be immediately suspended from the university and may be permanently dismissed,” the university said in a statement.

The school warned students that if recent trends in Idaho and Madison County continue, the university would be forced to move to a fully-remote instruction model.
