University of Alabama reports more than 500 COVID-19 cases since classes resumed | TheHill

The University of Alabama has reported 531 coronavirus cases on campus since starting classes on Aug. 19, according to the university system’s COVID-19 dashboard.

The data on the dashboard reflects on-campus testing results and self-reported private lab results. It does not include the entry testing the school conducted before classes started.

According to a local ABC affiliate, University of Alabama President Stuart Bell called the rise in COVID-19 “unacceptable” since the school has guidelines in place to avoid gatherings such as parties.
