As of Wednesday, the school, Stark State College, said it hasn’t had any confirmed cases across its multiple locations.
The news is somewhat surprising, as most college campuses have not been free of the virus this summer. A New York Times report, looking at a mix of public and private four-year universities, found that at least 6,600 confirmed cases of COVID-19 were traced to about 270 colleges during the pandemic. One notable outbreak occurred in the University of Washington’s Greek Row.
