Photo of the day: Quarantine meals in the dorms

This photo was taken on Friday, Aug. 28 in Neely Hall by a student who asked to remain anonymous. The Daily Egyptian recently ran a story about how chairs were being placed outside of students dorms to signify that they were in quarantine and required meal delivery. A student from Neely Hall whose suite mate is in quarantine says since the DE’s article came out, the chairs have been removed. “I’m frustrated with the university’s COVID-19 and contact tracing response,” the student told the DE. “My suite mate has come into contact with someone and has been quarantined in his room, however I was never contacted by the university or my suite mate about the situation. This lack of communication has possibly put my life and many other students lives at risk and things need to change.”
