Our survey, which is almost certainly an undercount, shows the risks that colleges face as they prepare for a school year in the midst of a pandemic. The virus already is spreading at universities even before the academic year has begun at most schools.
And this is during summer when most campuses are virtually empty.
Even with greatly reduced summer activity, colleges and universities are incubators of COVID that then flows in the community. Colleges need aggressive testing program to reopen safely, CDC's shameful non-recommendation notwithstanding. Few have them.
NYT rounds up information from AAU and elite athletics universities to find 6300+ associated covid cases. That, as most of these schools have been largely remote since March. And as many are bringing back thousands of people in weeks.

Oh. My. God. Over 6,300 campus infections already. This is a harbinger of much, much worse to come—60% of universities & colleges will reopen fully, bring all students back, & teach in classrooms. So much campus suffering.
As college students and professors decide whether to head back to class, and as universities weigh how and whether to reopen, the coronavirus is already on campus 🦠🏛🔥 Cue theme from Jaws...
This will go well. Like MLB.

RT : As educators, we want our students back on campus. In-person education is much better than online. Please wear your mask, keep a safe distance, wash your hands, and disinfect commonly used objects, so we can secure our future.
