Michigan State University Frats, Sororities Ordered to Quarantine for 2 Weeks

September 15, 2020

LANSING, Mich. — A Michigan county has ordered a two-week quarantine for 23 fraternities and sororities and seven large rental houses near Michigan State University following a coronavirus outbreak that a local health official said was turning into a “crisis.”

The mandatory quarantine, ordered Monday, means students or others living in the buildings cannot leave except for medical care or necessities that cannot be delivered.

Ingham County Health Officer Linda Vail acted two days after she urged all MSU students living locally to voluntarily self-quarantine for 14 days.

She said the outbreak was being fueled by a lack of cooperation and compliance from some students at the university, which is offering online-only instruction. People who willfully violate the order could face six months in jail, a $200 fine or both.

Since Aug. 24, two days before the start of classes, Ingham County’s COVID-19 case count has jumped by 52%, according to the county.
