Three Ingham County residents tested for COVID-19 all received negative results today including an MSU student, according to an Ingham County Health Department press release.

In total, 25 cases in Michigan came back positive, with 26 more tests underway, according to a state government website that's being updated as they receive more data.

Tests were conducted by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Bureau of Laboratories.

COVID-19 symptoms can take up to 14 days to appear after being exposed to the virus. It is recommended that if you begin showing symptoms of the novel coronavirus, you self-quarantine.

Common symptoms include fever, cough, chest pains or pressure and shortness of breath.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, encourages people to wash their hands, engaging in social distancing and staying home when they're sick.

The negative result comes back after Michigan State University suspended in-person classes through April 20, switching to an all online platform.
