Notre Dame makes changes to prevent spread of COVID-19

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- After recent increases in COVID-19 case counts, the University of Notre Dame is modifying some student activities to slow the spread of the disease.

The university says the last two days they have seen 94 new cases of COVID-19. Through contract tracing, they have determined the disease is transmitted through small, informal social settings.

To combat the spread of COVID-19, they are implementing new safety guidelines effective Thursday through March 1.

Any student activities, including student clubs and organizations, will move from in-person to virtual.

Seating capacity at lounge and dining locations will be reduced by 25%.

Residence Halls will be limited to residents only. No visitors will be allowed. When students are visiting in each other’s rooms, they must wear masks, social distance and leave the doors open for ventilation.

Students can attend mass at their residence hall, but must leave when it ends.

Students will continue to attend classes in-person.
