Over 160 University of Washington Greek Community Students Contract COVID-19

SEATTLE — The University of Washington says a coronavirus outbreak in its Greek community increased to more than 160 students since last week.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported there were 163 confirmed coronavirus cases among 12 fraternities and sororities on Monday.

University officials have urged students to isolate if they have tested positive or are experiencing symptoms. Students who had close contact with infected peers have been encouraged to get tested.

Seattle and King County Public Health Department’s Dr. Jeff Duchin says the outbreak has shown the difficulty of returning to campus during the pandemic.

Officials have also warned people to stay vigilant as cooler weather will mean more time indoors, which could facilitate the spread of the virus.
