U.Va. reports 252 cases over the weekend following record-setting highs last week

The University’s COVID-19 tracker reported 252 new cases Thursday through Sunday, bringing the total number of active cases at the University to 840. This more than doubles the 108 new cases reported over the same four-day period last week.

The update comes after the tracker posted two record-breaking caseloads last week on both Monday and Tuesday, which saw 121 and 229 cases, respectively. Following the increase in caseloads, University leadership implemented additional restrictions, banning all in-person gatherings and urging students to remain inside their residences unless absolutely necessary. University leadership will consider lifting the restrictions Friday.

The University also confirmed the presence of the B.1.1.7 U.K. variant in the community on Feb. 12, but has declined to disclose the number of cases related to the variant due to “concern for the privacy of the individuals involved,” according to University Spokesperson Brian Coy.

Despite speculation on social media that in-person elements of Greek life recruitment were the primary reason for the rise in caseloads, University leadership has maintained that the Greek community is not the main contributor to the increase, most recently reinforcing this at its town hall Friday.

Bring a bunch of 19 year olds back to town and tell them to behave. How is that working out?

2. I'm staying right here in The Hook

Cases in this health district (C'ville and surrounding counties) had been trending down significantly. The lion's share of the new cases appear to be at UVA and have caused a big upswing.

I'm rather isolated from the student world, so I'll carry on in relative isolation.

3. My folks go there for medical treatment

Some treatments. They’ve both gotten the first shot - they got them elsewhere from UVA.
