At the University of Dayton in Ohio, President Eric Spina said the school of 8,500 undergraduates launched an aggressive testing and tracing program after a meeting of students with too few masks caused a cluster of cases, followed by another outbreak in dense student housing on the campus periphery.
“We were caught off guard when cases started going from a few a day to 30 a day,” Mr. Spina said. A blitz of tests soon uncovered 100 cases a day, mostly asymptomatic. Only two students had to be hospitalized, and both have recovered.

In-person classes have been “very carefully designed” to allow for physical distancing, he said. Face coverings are required everywhere, including classrooms, and students and staff have been trained in safety measures, including cleaning and disinfecting between classes, Spina said.
University leaders will continue to evaluate the COVID-19 case trends, and expect to announce next week if additional classes will move to in-person instruction, officials said.
