How Duke beat UNC…and this is no game

The Guardian reports Duke and UNC took dramatically different approaches to preparing for the fall semester. And Duke’s plan was far more successful.

As part of its plan to combat Covid, the university allowed only freshmen and sophomores to reside on campus for the fall semester, spreading roughly 3,000 students among its housing, one per room.

These moves, along with a rigorous weekly testing program that is screening thousands of students, faculty and staff, have helped keep Duke’s positive cases low and could prove a model for other institutions hoping to avoid the fate of universities around the country that have experienced uncontrolled outbreaks.
