University of Dayton: Covid-19 cases since reopening equals...

... HALF OF ALL CASES for the entirety of Montgomery County OH for the year!

The county has a total population greater than 500,000.


The health commissioner today called the University of Dayton student outbreak “a major threat to the public’s health and the well-being of our citizens,” and urged students to do their part now to control the spread of coronavirus.

Jeffrey A. Cooper, health commissioner, credited UD leadership and challenged the students. The letter also included the potential for the health department to recommend UD extend its remote learning program through the entire first semester, something students and many in the university community have hoped to avoid.

“University of Dayton Administration, faculty and staff did their part. It is now time for all students to do their part,” Cooper’s letter said...

... “Unfortunately, citizen complaints and direct observation by Public Health personnel demonstrate that some students are not meeting this expectation and have ignored the University’s guidance. Those behaviors have placed the wider Dayton and Montgomery County community at greater risk,” the letter said..

Cooper said the community was making great progress in controlling the spread of the virus and transitioned to a lower risk level in the Ohio Public Health Advisory System. In the past two weeks, however, the outbreak at the University of Dayton has reversed that trend, elevating Montgomery County to having one of the highest number of COVID-19 cases per capita among all Ohio counties.

“The outbreak at the University of Dayton has become the largest outbreak in Montgomery County. University of Dayton cases are now equal to half of the total of all cases combined in the other 60 outbreaks in Montgomery County since April,” the letter said.
