JHF Suggests COVID-19 Solutions for Local Universities

In response to recent concerns about COVID-19 outbreaks on local university campuses, the Jewish Healthcare Foundation surveyed our Board members and Window newsletter subscribers to generate creative solutions for campuses.

We present to you the results of last week's survey on "Keeping our Campuses and our Communities Safe." In 2 ½ days, we received over 100 helpful ideas to prevent the outbreaks that have plagued other cities.

Clearly, we touched a chord. When the nation learned about the outbreaks of COVID-19 at the University of North Carolina, Iowa State and Notre Dame early last week, there was little surprise. College students who have been confined for months, often in their parents' homes, are likely to savor their freedom in every respect. Simply hoping they will mask and social distance—abandon the parties and social life central to college life—was wishful thinking.

The safety of the students, as well as the faculty, staff, neighbors, and health personnel at nearby hospitals, requires vigorous and innovative measures. It is an ethical and public health obligation. The suggestions that we've assembled, thanks to our many respondents, are worth serious consideration. Hopefully, these ideas will prove helpful to our university officials as they accelerate protections.

We tried to remove redundant and Orwellian measures and sort these ideas into categories. We would like to hear from you and welcome additions.
