Stanford calls off plans to bring students back to campus

This excerpt is from the Chronicle of Higher Education’s coronavirus blog:

Stanford University has spiked plans to bring freshmen and sophomores back to campus for the winter quarter, a day after announcing that 43 students had tested positive for Covid-19 in the past week, The Stanford Daily reported. That number was nearly four times the previous week’s case number.

In December the university had affirmed plans to bring students back, and last week some had begun moving in. But citing the strain on area hospitals caused by a ten-fold increase in county cases since the week before Thanksgiving, university officials said only resident assistants and students with special circumstances could stay. 

The announcement expressed hope that juniors and seniors could return as planned for the spring semester. But officials cautioned that those plans “as always, are subject to the conditions of the pandemic.”
