Colleges across the country are suspending in-person classes because of COVID-19 outbreaks weeks after opening their doors to students.As the novel coronavirus pandemic spread across the US through spring and summer, several universities spent months contemplating if they should open to students in the fall.And after many schools opted for in-person learning, some schools haven't had success: The University of North Carolina and University of Notre Dame have canceled in-person classes because of COVID-19 outbreaks, while several other schools are quarantining students because of the virus.Michigan State University, meanwhile, opted to go online on Tuesday, just two weeks before classes were expected to start.Insider has compiled a list of schools who have suspended classes or quarantined students because of COVID-19. The school hadn't yet opened its dorms to students, but Stanley said the school decided to go remote after seeing outbreaks on other campuses."It has become evident to me that, despite our best efforts and strong planning, it is unlikely we can prevent widespread transmission of COVID-19 between students if our undergraduates return to campus," he said.East Carolina University moved at least 17 students into isolation off-campus after they an outbreak at one of the school's dorms on Monday.The students live in Gateway Residence Hall, according to WITN.East Carolina is continuing classes despite the outbreak, while urging students to social distance, wear masks, and avoid crowds."We are working closely with local health department officials to ensure notifications are made quickly to those who may have come in contact with those who tested positive for COVID-19 so they can be directed as to their next steps," the school said in a statement. Parties are against current student code at the school, but Kentucky officials are aware of at least 21 party-related citations since August 8, Geegan said."We are working closely with the city to enforce the Code of Student Conduct, sharing information daily and meeting weekly to discuss issues of concern," she told CNN.The school is still conducting in-person learning with increased precautions.Iowa State officials told CNN that 2.2% of students, or 175, tested for COVID-19 received positive results.Student health center director Erin Baldwin told CNN that the school has a strict isolation policy for people who have tested positive for COVID-19."Students who tested positive are required to isolate for 10 days.
