The University of Notre Dame is making some changes to help slow the spread of coronavirus on campus.
Over the last few days, the university has seen 94 new COVID-19 cases, most of which were found to stem from small, informal social settings.
In response, the university is implementing new safety guidelines that take effect today and last through March 1, according to ABC 57 News.
The new guidelines are as follows:
- All student activities will move from in-person to virtual.
- Seating capacity at lounge and dining locations is being reduced by 25%.
- Students can attend mass at their residence hall, but must leave when it ends.
- Residence Halls will be limited to residents only; no visitors will be allowed.
- When students are visiting in each other’s rooms, they must wear masks, social distance and leave the doors open for ventilation.
Students will continue to attend class in-person.
