BALTIMORE COUNTY — Stevenson University is transitioning to remote instruction for at least 2 weeks after more than 13% of returning students tested positive for COVID-19.
The school planned to return for in-person classes but in the first 3 days of testing 45 out of 337 people tested positive.
All students who tested positive are being asked to isolate at home and contact responders are identifying anyone with whom they had close contact. Those people are also being asked to quarantine.
Classes will now be online for at least the first 2 weeks of the semester.
Students stopped moving in to residence halls as of 6 p.m. on August 27.
Students who are currently in residence halls are being asked to return home if feasible. The school is working with students who are unable to leave for academic or hardship reasons.
The school also says it will provide housing and meal plan refunds for students who have been living on campus during this time.
