      The university plans to reopen its campus for in-person classes in the fall.

      At least 121 University of Washington students, nearly all of whom are fraternity members, have tested positive for COVID-19, officials said Sunday.

      In what the Seattle university described as the “Greek Row outbreak,” at least 112 fraternity house members tested positive for the virus as of Sunday. The nine other students who tested positive were “close contacts” of the fraternity house residents, but did not live in the houses, the university said.

      A total of 213 people have tested positive for COVID-19, including students, staff, and faculty, raising concerns about the safety of students as the University of Washington prepares to reopen its campus for in-person instruction in the fall.

      Dr. Geoffrey Gottlieb, chair of the UW Advisory Committee on Communicable Diseases, said in a statement that the cluster of cases in the fraternity houses was “concerning and reminds us that outbreaks can quickly spiral.”

      since the school has been shut down for months, and now it’s summer anyway. Probably not the first time a virus has spread rapidly in that environment…. though some of those can be cleared up with some penicillin or whatever.
