Just a week after reopening campus and over 100 cases of COVID-19 found, UNC Chapel Hill decided to move classes completely online:
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill abruptly decided it will no longer hold in-person classes on campus after about 130 students tested positive for Covid-19 in the first week since classes began.
In the past week, the Covid-19 positivity rate among students rose to 13.6% of the 954 students tested, and five employees also tested positive, according to the university's Covid-19 dashboard. As of Monday morning, 177 students were in isolation and 349 were in quarantine, both on and off campus.
Furthermore, after attempts to create a safer campus, efforts still failed:
On Sunday, UNC announced a fourth cluster of Covid-19 cases on campus, defined as five or more cases in proximity. Two clusters were identified at residence halls, one as at a private apartment complex that houses some students, and another was among members of a fraternity.
Beyond UNC, Oklahoma state University reported new cases and the University of North Georgia have been found violating social distancing and wearing few masks during a party.
COVID-19 is not gone -- it's only getting worst. Schools are not ready to open.
