Providence College Deals With Surge of Student Virus Cases

September 18, 2020

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The president of Providence College announced the school will move to remote-only learning for at least two weeks after a surge of coronavirus cases among students.

More than 80 students tested positive in just two days, the private Catholic university’s president, Rev. Kenneth Sicard, wrote in a message to the community. The school has 106 positive student cases among about 4,800 students.

Students who live off campus cannot leave their apartments, and students who live on campus will be tested and can’t leave campus, he said. Students who violate the rules face suspensions.

Sicard says if things get worse, the campus may be shut down for the semester.
