At Providence College, 34 students have tested positive since a spike in cases last week prompted the school to shut down in-person classes and issue a stay at home order to students.

The school is in the process of testing all students, and tested more than 2,400 over the course of Friday and Saturday. The school expects to complete testing by Monday or Tuesday, according to a spokesperson. 

In a message to students Sunday, Providence College Dean of Students Steven Sears said many of the students who have contracted COVID-19 have returned home or are quarantining in isolation. 

When Providence College made the decision to shut down in-person classes for the week, President Rev. Kenneth Sicard, called the action “our last chance to remain together in person for the fall semester.”

According to a college spokesperson, a decision to close the school would come down to college leadership in consultation with the state health department. 

The University of Rhode Island has quarantined a third Greek life house, after placing two in quarantine at the end of last week. Three members of a campus sorority tested positive, and are currently isolating. The University placed the sorority under quarantine Sunday. 

Last week, three cases connected with Greek life, prompted URI to quarantine a sorority and a fraternity.

According to a spokesperson at URI, the school is not currently planning to close Greek life houses. The University tested 1,624 students last week, of which 62 tested positive for COVID-19.
