You don't need to be an epidemiologist to understand that coronavirus cases across the country are surging.
Using the Johns Hopkins University coronavirus tracker, we can see that daily coronavirus cases are surging in multiple locations around the country. Now, a new worry is on the horizon, and according to experts, a specific group of people will most likely cause the next massive spike in new coronavirus cases. That group of people is college students.
Many experts have warned that college students will be responsible for the next massive spike in new COVID-19 cases, as thousands will be heading home for the Thanksgiving holiday. As you can already probably imagine, college students traveling from virus breeding ground campuses will pose a serious risk to their home state communities. For this reason, many universities are planning on "to end in-person classes before Thanksgiving and require students to finish the term remotely..."
Additionally, The Times added, "The American College Health Association, which represents college health officers, recently issued public health guidelines recommending that schools encourage students to get tested before their Thanksgiving departure, refrain from traveling if they test positive and quarantine for 14 days at home upon arrival. But the association stopped short of calling for mandatory testing."
