Kutztown (the borough not the college) is planning to enact an ordinance next week that no residence can have more than 10 occupants and you have to wear a mask when you are within 6 feet of anyone indoors or out. Paging shadokat- how much of the student housing is in the borough?

What the University is doing:

And now they go home all across the state, if not the nation, spreading it wherever they go.

UGA also is saying for students to return home to quarantine. They are renting hotel rooms and contracting with private housing providers to provide places for students to quarantine if they can't return home. The problem is how to get meals. My friend's daughter is a freshman. There's an outbreak of COVID in her dorm and she was supposed to get test results today. But her daughter doesn't know how she is supposed to get meals from the dining hall while waiting to find out. She doesn't want to leave and be around others to go pick up food from the dining hall, but she can't live on delivery alone. So frustrating. Also, she's an OOS student. So if her mom goes and picks her up, she brings COVID home to her mom and sibling.

My youngest son is now recovering from Covid at college. His brother says that somehow, robots are delivering meals to him. He feels like he was run over by a bus but no longer feels "sick" per se.

Did they test them as soon as they got there? A lot of them probably came in with it.

Thank you all! He's slowly but surely coming back. This is the boy who had to leave for college the day of his sister's memorial service, then had a bad concussion from cheerleading last year, and now this. I can't believe he's had 3 major occurrences in 3 years of college.

Fraternity members ignore safety guidelines on bid day

https://thedmonline.com/fraternity-m...es-on-bid-day/

Quote:
Health guidelines issued by the university and the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life’s #MaskUpFSL campaign did not stop fraternity members from hosting several in-person bid day events without following mask and social distancing guidelines.

In photos obtained by The Daily Mississippian, members of Kappa Alpha, Sigma Chi, Sigma Pi, Delta Psi and Phi Kappa Psi gathered in large groups in front of their respective houses. The university’s Interfraternity Council (IFC) released guidelines in August outlining virtual recruitment, which state that there is “zero tolerance for any social gatherings violating university and Oxford policies…”

Oxford has jumped to #4 in the country with the greatest number of cases per capita in the past two weeks, according to the New York Times.

Yeah, we heard about the "ordinance". Problem is all the state schools are having the same problem. It's why Bloomsburg is now under all virtual classes. Sadly, when you have 18-22 year olds with lots of free time on their hands, they're going to find something to pass the time.

I get that people want their kids to have a normal college experience, but there is no normal right now. If your kid is in college, online is normal now. And if your kid went back to school, likelihood is they're getting COVID and bringing it home when they kick the kids out of dorms and housing. Bloomsburg has actually said that if you want to stay on campus in the dorms, you can do so. That's for money sake I'm sure, but it makes sense to leave your COVID riddled kid on campus and not bring them home to give you COVID.

I'll keep you updated if I hear anything else.

My son is a freshman in college and all of his classes are virtual, however he is in a dorm. He just called me freaking out because he missed one of the posted assignments for a class- it was on a tab that he didn't see. The university has said over and over that the professors are working with students if they have issues. So my son emailed the professor. Professor was sorry/not sorry. its a zero.

The kids were given no guidance on how to use the systems. Different professors are using different systems (some are canvas, some are McGraw-Hill).

I told him to chalk it up to a learning experience and he will have plenty of points he can get to make up for one zero. (and told him to feel free to email his advisor the response from the professor).

Its an odd time for sure.
