TOLEDO, Ohio — Soon after students returned to the UT campus, reports of large gatherings have started, as well as reports of coronavirus cases. In a letter addressed to students, University of Toledo Interim President Gregory Postel, M.D. stated:

“Your actions have consequences that impact you and all of those around you. This behavior simply cannot continue. We will hold students accountable to the safety commitment they signed and will enforce these principles among our employees.” — University of Toledo Interim President Gregory Postel, M.D.

Off-campus parties have led to an increase in coronavirus cases at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, Notre Dame, Michigan State University and more. In some cases, classes were canceled and lessons were taught online.

“We need you — our students, faculty and staff — to do your part.

We’ve seen colleges and universities across the country change their plans and move to remote learning because of behaviors that led to increased infection rates on their campuses.” — University of Toledo Interim President Gregory Postel, M.D.

Postel added that students who attend large gatherings need to quarantine for 14-days.

VIDEO: Schools in Lucas County will begin remote learning this school year. This follows a recommendation from the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department that encourages schools to continue with remote learning because of an 11% COVID-19 test positivity rate. The goal is to keep the positivity rate below 5% and if schools were to reopen, the virus would spread from students to high risk individuals.
