Notre Dame reports spike in COVID-19 cases, moves classes online for 2 weeks
The University of Notre Dame reported 80 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday and a total of 147 cases. Because of the increase in cases, all undergraduate classes have been moved online for the next two weeks.
Rev. Jenkins announced the changes Tuesday in a live stream. He added public spaces on campus will be closed and residence halls will be restricted to residents only.
In addition, all gatherings have been limited to just 10 people.
Rev. Jenkins encouraged all students to wear a mask, social distance and keep up with their daily health check.
He said many of the new cases have been traced to off campus gatherings but because they learned of the incidents through contact tracing, there will be no discipline. They want students to continue to be forthcoming in those situations.
