ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – An upset St. Louis parent called the You Paid For It after sending her son off to college only for him to catch COVID-19.

Rochelle Daughrity said Missouri Southern State University didn’t let her son, Larry, know they had put his two suitemates on quarantine after they showed symptoms for coronavirus.

The Daughrity family is upset that the school didn’t warn them until it was too late.

The suitemates eventually tested positive for COVID-19. Larry later came down with symptoms and tested positive too. He’s now in isolation.

FOX 2 reached out to the university and a spokesperson said they would not move a student into living quarters with people on quarantine or who had tested positive for coronavirus.

Meanwhile, Larry said he’s feeling better and hopes he’ll soon be out of isolation.
