As of today, 165 on and off-campus Lehigh students have tested positive for COVID-19 𑁋 100 more than last week’s count.
Lehigh has expanded its surveillance testing to include both on and off-campus students. However, students who are not selected for testing have found difficulty receiving help from the Health Center. Students who have been in contact with a positive case have been denied testing.
Several students received interim suspensions for violating the university’s COVID-19 guidelines, Holly Taylor, assistant dean of students, said. The students will undergo a COVID-19 expedited conduct process. Students on-campus who received the interim suspension were expected to leave campus immediately, and off-campus students are banned from campus until the resolution of their conduct case. They are all allowed to continue to take remote classes.
Provost Nathan Urban announced in an email that the university will not require campus-wide cancellation of all meetings, classes and tests on Election Day. He said he made this decision “given the disruptions to the teaching schedule already implemented in response to the pandemic.”
Bethlehem City Council unanimously approved Michelle Kott as the city’s new police chief. She will be the first female police chief in Bethlehem’s history.
