College communities experience rise in COVID-19 cases as the fall semester begins

As feared, a New York Times review finds that many college towns have seen a spike in COVID-19 infections as students return. Specifically, the 203 U.S. counties where students make up at least 10 percent of the population have seen a steady rise in cases since early August. Further, about half of those counties have experienced their highest caseloads of the pandemic since August 1. The positive news is that the surge in cases has not been accompanied by an increase in deaths in these counties. #covid-19
