Students 'Nothing Short of Phenomenal' in Minimizing COVID Spread
A Duke University effort to minimize COVID-19 virus spread among students this fall was successful largely through aggressive testing and the comprehensive embrace of responsible personal behaviors by the campus community, several health experts said Wednesday. The effort launched in August when all enrolled students were asked to self-quarantine for 14 days prior to arriving on campus. They were also asked to sign a code of conduct pledge, wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines.
