University of Maryland implements new COVID-19 policy at College Park campus

University officials hope to limit the spread of COVID-19 on campus. The new COVID-19 policy reads, in part: “All students living on-campus will need to isolate at their permanent home or another off-campus location if they test positive.”

According to the policy, students can only return on day six if they meet a list of conditions, including no fever for 24 hours, improving symptoms and a negative rapid test on day six. Even then, there’s another five days of masking and dining alone. Students can request a sick meal be delivered to their dorm room.
