UNC's dorm plan deemed "highest-risk" by CDC
As the big universities in the Triangle prepare to welcome students back to campus, residents in the areas are concerned about the potential spread of the coronavirus.Posted — Updated
Many students will be coming in from coronavirus hotspots like California, Texas and Florida.
As of right now, UNC-Chapel Hill plans to allow full capacity in dorm buildings. That could mean as many as eight students sharing one suite.
That falls under the Center for Disease Control's highest risk category for shared living situations.
UNC reported over 1,200 cancellations of housing since May 1, but does not track reasons for those cancellations.
Students have until August 2 to opt out of their housing contract for any reason without penalty.
