SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News)- Syracuse University announced there are no new confirmed cases of Covid-19 from Day Hall. The University now has 33 active cases and over 100 students in quarantine. Could some of SU’s protocol’s be an issue?
According to Syracuse guidelines, students who think they have COVID symptoms should walk through campus to the Barnes Center. But is this the safest way to get tested? Syracuse students Zachary Cohen and Lainey Steffus don’t think so.
“We should be able to get some sort of testing delivered to us and that way we don’t have to leave anywhere outside our dorm and it wouldn’t put anyone else at risk,” said Cohen.
“If you know there’s like a couple kids feeling sick in a certain hall, I’m sure someone could come with the test like they’re in the bags anyway they could probably deliver them,” said Steffus.
However, some students said they support the safety guideline.
“I feel like if you’re wearing a mask and you keep your distance from everyone because it is an outside walk to Barnes it’s not that bad,” said Olivia Thompson, a Syracuse undergraduate student.
One thing all students can agree on is that they want to be on campus for the rest of the fall semester.
