Just a tiny hiccup

Open all the things!

Or maybe not.

Six days after classes began, the University of Alabama has experienced an “unacceptable rise” in coronavirus casesthe university’s president said.

The University of Alabama’s main campus in Tuscaloosa has recorded 531 total cases. The remaining campuses in Birmingham and Huntsville have recorded 35 cases cumulatively, according to the university’s Covid-19 dashboard.

Yes I’d say 531 is too many.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Notre Dame both halted in-person classes within days of the start of the school year. Each university has recorded over 400 Covid-19 cases since mid-August.

This week, The Ohio State University on Monday suspended over 200 students who violated the school’s Covid-19 regulations around socializing — the school requires students to wear a mask, maintain social distancing and keep group gatherings to no more than 10 people.

This isn’t going to go well, is it.
