GVSU Students Ordered To Stay In Place For 2 Weeks

From the Associated Press — Students at Grand Valley State University have been ordered to hunker down for two weeks due to a spike in coronavirus cases linked to the western Michigan campus. There have been more than 600 cases of COVID-19 among students August 23, with the majority among students living off campus. Ottawa County says the stay-in-place order starts Thursday. Students must stick to their on-campus or off-campus residence unless attending classes, exercising, getting food, seeking health care or working at an essential job. Students cannot return to their home community unless there’s an emergency. The move comes a few days after a similar order was issued to students living in fraternities and sororities at Michigan State University.
