5 UConn dorms go into quarantine after COVID-19 case rise

STORRS, Conn. (AP) - The University of Connecticut has put five dorms under quarantine after an outbreak of COVID-19 that officials say may be related to several large, off-campus parties last weekend. Thirty-five positive cases had been identified on campus in the two days leading up to Friday. Residents at the five dorms are able to receive meals at designated dining halls but aren't allowed to attend in-person classes or events. Officials said the quarantine likely will last until the end of this week, when students are scheduled to leave for spring break and learn remotely the rest of the semester.
