Some Greek Village houses let out of quarantine; more students face interim suspensions

Eight Greek Village houses have been released from quarantine, and two more students are under interim suspension, an email from university spokesperson Jeff Stensland announced.

One more house will come out of quarantine over the weekend, and four more remain quarantined, the email said.

The two students were suspended for “violating public safety, either through hosting/organizing large parties or violating quarantine.” There are now a total of 24 students under interim suspension from the university for coronavirus-related offenses.

“The university strongly urges all of students to follow public health guidelines to keep our entire community safe: wear face coverings, socially distance and avoid large in-person gatherings where distancing cannot be achieved,” the email said.

The university is also doing targeted testing at “specific residence halls and houses in the Greek Village.” 

Stensland said the university is communicating directly with the residents but is not disclosing their locations to the public to protect student privacy.
