Spooked by what they describe as a “rapid increase in COVID-19 positivity rates” since welcoming students back to campus for the spring semester, Michigan State University is expecting students to remain in their dorms except for limited circumstances.
It’s part of a plan for what officials call “enhanced physical distancing”.
Students who live on campus are being told to remain in their rooms except for:
- Picking up meals
- Attending an in-person class
- Conducting research or going to work
- Testing for COVID
- Getting medical care
- Outdoor exercise with “two people or fewer”
- Accessing secure internet
Students are not allowed to have visitors in their rooms, either.
The new rules take effect tonight at midnight and continue through February 13th.
