"Duke University boasts a 98 percent vaccination rate among its students and 92 percent among its staff. Despite this, the university is currently dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak.
Unvaccinated students are required to participate in surveillance testing two times per week, while vaccinated students have to get tested at least once per week...
Duke administrators announced new guidelines for the school year in an email to protect the 'health, safety, and the ability of Duke to fulfill its educational mission.'
The new guidelines include the use of masks in all indoor and outdoor locations unless individuals are exercising alone, eating, drinking or not around other people.
Indoor group seating at campus dining facilities will also be temporarily suspended, and students and staff have been advised to eat outdoors as much as possible.
Due to absences from students in isolation, professors are also encouraged to teach their undergraduate classes remotely and student activities are limited."
