More than 550 positive cases of the coronavirus have been reported among students, faculty and staff at Virginia colleges and universities as they’ve reopened their campuses for the fall semester.
At Virginia Commonwealth University, 44 positive cases within the athletics department forced the university to create 110 beds’ worth of space in the Honors College residential hall to serve as home for those in isolation. On Thursday, the university in downtown Richmond reported 110 active cases.
