“As we have stated previously, we all must remember COVID-19 is extremely contagious,” said Spina. “While we are thankful that most students have reported mild symptoms, we know another surge in cases like we saw at the start of the semester would be unsustainable and would threaten the ability of the community to stay on-campus, especially as flu season approaches.”
Some in-person classes at the university started Wednesday as coronavirus cases on campus continued to decreased. Initially, UD planned to return to in-person classes in August, but a surge of cases days before classes were scheduled to begin resulted in the university delaying face-to-face learning for two weeks.
As of Sept. 19, there were 37 active cases and 1,204 recoveries reported.
