UConn's Storrs Campus Under Full Quarantine
The University of Connecticut says it has placed all of its residential buildings on its Storrs campus under quarantine or modified quarantine for the rest of the in-person semester, which ends Nov. 20. In a statement, the university said the move was needed because of the “persistently high number of positive cases” of coronavirus. UConn reported seven new on-campus positive cases and 24 new off-campus positive cases. One more employee tested positive. In a letter sent Friday, UConn said it doesn’t have the spread of COVID under control. It also said that every student must receive a COVID test before leaving for Thanksgiving break.
