27 Greek or co-operative living houses have students that have been told to quarantine or isolate of coronavirus concerns at Purdue University, but the school is not saying which houses those are.

They are saying six of those houses are on full quarantine. The latest numbers from Purdue, according to the school’s COVID dashboard page, show 298 students and 21 employees have gotten the virus out of over 12-thousand tested since August 1st.

Indiana University has a whole list of Greek houses affected by the virus and even has an online dashboard page of how many students per house have tested positive.

IU is the only school known to have such a dashboard page specifically for Greek houses.

Tippecanoe County as a whole, where Purdue is located, has a much lower positivity rate over the last seven days compared to Monroe (IU), Delaware (Ball State), and Vigo (Indiana State) Counties, all of which are home to major universities.

St. Joseph County (Notre Dame) and Marion County (Bulter, IUPUI) are the only other counties with major universities that have a 7-day positivity at or below 5-percent.

– Tippecanoe County: 2.94% 7-day positivity rate (all tests) with 24 weekly reported cases.

– St. Joseph County: 4.49% 7-day positivity rate (all tests) with 112 weekly cases.

– Marion County: 5.59% 7-day positivity rate (all tests) with 85 weekly cases.

– Monroe County: 9.2% 7-day positivity rate (all tests) with 49 weekly cases.

– Delaware County: 11.2% 7-day positivity rate (all tests) with 52 weekly cases.

– Vigo County: 11.3% 7-day positivity rate (all tests) with 255 weekly cases.
