Breaking: The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will move all undergraduate courses online Wednesday, following a series of Covid-19 outbreaks on and around campus since classes started last week

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will shift all undergraduate courses for the fall to remote instruction Wednesday, following a series of Covid-19 outbreaks on and around campus since starting classes last week.

UNC reported 135 new cases in the past week, including 130 among students, with multiple separate clusters. Its positive-test rate was 13.6% between Aug. 10 and Aug. 16, according to a web dashboard that tracks cases, up from 2.8% the prior week.

Paying tuition for online classes? I have a bridge to sell you next.

Be aware! They did spend 8 million in CARES act money! 203 new documents cams, 400 new projects and 200 microphone placement in classrooms (this isn’t even half of all the new spending)....all for less than a week. Glad all the money was spent before shut down. Corruption!

Panic parade material...

And other schools are gearing up to do the same thinking this virus will act any differently.

Get ready to reprint this story over, and over again.

HMMMMM. CDC says it takes 14 days to gestate But there are finding cases in less than a week. Either this is Fake News, or Students went to school KNOWING THEY WERE SICK

Well, that didn’t last long!

For all college's and universities, COVID outbreaks this fall is not a question of 'if', it's 'when'. How school leadership handles them is the big question, IMO.

Shocking, absolutely Shocking. When does football start?

I don't have access to the full article. Curious: are the students sick or are they healthy but just testing positive? How many had to be hospitalized?


But still going to play football?

There is no reason to do this. The infected students and those that were traced to them via contact can quarantine fot 10-14 days for treatment or as a precaution.

This is hard news for colleges preparing to go back in person.

Makes sense because that’s where the original Covid virus research took place that Fauci started before it was moved to Wuhan

Duh ya think? Wear a mask! One kegget away from an outbreak. Your president waisted our time while shut down & quarantined.

Not if, but when. And now we know.

I thought it would be a matter of time for most universities, but I must admit I didn’t expect any university to go online within a week. Doesn’t bode well for other universities in similar situation. Maybe they will outlast the first week but how long?

lets get prepared for coronavirus 2nd wave

And how much will UNC be cutting tuition costs? NO VALUE PROPOSITION HERE.

Imagine if they spent the past five months just preparing for remote learning instead of putting their own students at risk? Just a thought
