OSU Releases Data On Campus COVID-19 Violations
Ohio State University reports logging thousands of COVID-19 policy violations and issuing 446 formal reprimands during the fall semester. The school says a student may have been observed violating COVID-19 policy in multiple ways, and so the same incident may be marked twice under two different categories. The school may also not have been able to determine what happened in certain scenarios. 32 instances of suspension or suspension in abeyance, 37 instances of deferred housing contracts and 69 instances of disciplinary probation were recorded. Since the beginning of August, more than 5,700 students and 624 staff tested positive for COVID-19.
