No parties, no trips: Colleges set COVID-19 rules for fall - ABC News

Image
As they struggle to salvage some semblance of a campus experience this fall, U.S. colleges are requiring promises from students to help contain the coronavirus — no keg parties, no long road trips and no outside guests on campus.No kidding. Administrators warn that failure to wear masks, practice social distancing and avoid mass gatherings could bring serious consequences, including getting booted from school.Critics question whether it's realistic to demand that college students not act like typical college students. But the push illustrates the high stakes for universities planning to welcome at least some students back. Wide-scale COVID-19 testing, quarantines and plexiglass barriers in classrooms won’t work if too many students misbehave.“I think that the majority of students are going to be really respectful and wear their masks, social distance, keep gatherings small,” said incoming Tulane University senior Sanjali De Silva. “But I fear that there will be a distinct group of…

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – With rumors swirling that the fall college football season will be canceled, South Florida athletes are bracing for what’s next.Last week, the University of Miami Hurricanes were busy working out and preparing for a slightly shorter season.But with the pandemic raging across America and fears of student athletes catching and spreading the virus, there are indications that the governing bodies of the college football teams are leaning towards pulling the plug on the fall college season.Reaction on social media has been strong.One athlete tweeted, “We all want to play football this season. Establish universal mandated health and safety procedures.”“It’s going to create a logjam for the players, especially on the college level,” said South Florida high school football recruiter Larry Blustein. “The students may play an extra year.”Blustein said that logjam will affect high school football players as they begin their college careers.“A lot of people don’t agree with can…

Some Florida schools, colleges open doors amid trepidation, litigation - The Center Square

Image
(The Center Square) – With trepidation and unresolved lawsuits as a backdrop, about a dozen mostly rural Florida public school districts and several college campuses began in-person classes for students Monday.“I feel the buzz. People are excited,” Gov. Ron DeSantis said Monday during a roundtable discussion at Winthrop College Prep Academy in Riverview, a Tampa-area charter school that opened Monday with face-to-face instruction. “They really want to be back.”Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran issued an order in July that mandated K-12 schools open this month and offer the “full panoply” of brick-and-mortar services.DeSantis and Corcoran repeatedly have since clarified the order does not mandate parents send children into schools if they prefer “distance learning,” which is among options offered by school districts.The order, they said, was to ensure districts provide services for students who want, or need, in-person instruction and for working parents who cannot leave …
