The university says the main campus will move into the “elevated risk position” Wednesday night. There has been a steady increase in positive cases among students, it said, and given the UK variant, healthcare leaders fear the trend will continue.
As a result of the rising COVID-19 cases, the Pittsburgh campus will move to the elevated risk position at 9:00 p.m. and emergency shelter will begin. Students should only go out to class, work when necessary, exercise safely, take away food and take away essentials. More information: https://t.co/A6nNnQrLAC pic.twitter.com/inYF8d4WV2
