Authorities at a college in the San Diego area taped off a building on campus and quarantined some students as a precaution Thursday afternoon.

The student attended Southwestern College in Chula Vista. Fox 5 San Diego says the concern started after a student reported her sister exhibited flu-like symptoms and had been hospitalized after the family recently traveled to the Midwest.
