Over half of UW fraternities, sororities hit with COVID-19

SEATTLE - More than half of fraternities and sororities on the University of Washington's Greek Row now have reported at least one case of COVID-19 since a surge of cases began in September, the university reports.

Of the 45 Greek houses tracked by the UW, 23 have reported one or more confirmed cases, which includes 15 sororities and eight fraternities.
I believe in the values of friendship and fidelity to purpose

The sad thing is that this post may or may not belong over in the Risk Management area...

How does that compare with dormitories and other living arrangements on that campus?

Honestly, I don't even think this is news. This has been an ongoing reality where I teach all semester.... One week into the semester, over half the houses were isolating due to positive cases, followed by a quarantine of all Greek houses and apartments, followed by another isolation/quarantine due to another positive case, followed by a state health dept. move to all remote teaching at all Michigan universities as of today.

I think it's been overshadowed by other news, but I think that COVID has been making the rounds all fall.
