FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) — The U.S. Army has quarantined 90 soldiers and instructors who tested positive for the coronavirus during a survival course at Fort Bragg.

Army spokeswoman Janice Burton told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the soldiers were participating in a special warfare course called Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape.

She said a total of 110 people were involved in the course, and 82 students and 8 instructors had tested positive for COVID-19.

Burton said everyone who participated has now been quarantined, although the 20 people who did not test positive were separated from the others.
