All Duke University undergraduate students will be required to stay in place from 12 a.m. Sunday morning through 9 a.m. the following Sunday, March 21. The message was sent to all Duke undergraduate students Saturday.
During this time, in-person courses will shift to remote-only. Duke said there are very few exceptions to this, and students will hear directly if they are still expected to be in person for any classes.
Additionally, students living in university-provided housing are required to stay in their residence hall room or apartment at all times, only leaving for “essential activities” such as food, health, or safety needs. Off-campus students are not permitted on campus except for surveillance testing, picking up food, or seeking medical care.
Duke said the decision was “necessary to contain the rapidly escalating number of COVID cases among Duke undergraduates, which is principally driven by students attending recruitment parties for selective living groups.”
