University of Wisconsin-Madison Directs Nine Sororities and Fraternities To Quarantine

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has directed nine off-campus sororities and fraternities to quarantine for 14 days.

According to a news release on Friday, 38 of the 420 students have tested positive for COVID-19, and about 1,500 of the 5,000 students in the Greek system live in fraternity or sorority houses.

About 1,500 of the 5,000 students in the Greek system live in fraternity or sorority houses, the news release reports.

“Violation of isolation and quarantine orders may result in a court order for involuntary quarantine and/or a fine of up to $10,000, according to (Public Health Madison & Dane County). Failure to comply also will result in university sanctions against students who violate a quarantine directive,” according to the release.

All live-in members of other chapters are required by the university to get tested for coronavirus.

CNN reports that the University of Notre Dame switched temporarily to virtual learning due to the number of rising cases. Purdue made getting a Covid-19 test a requirement for living or attending class on campus.
