With students returning to school over the last two weeks, COVID-19 outbreaks are bound to happen. Merrimack College, Boston College, and Northeastern University are among the recent to make headlines.

The lingering question remains whether or not college students should quarantine on or off campus. Some schools have designated areas incase of outbreaks, including select dorms or nearby hotels. Others are sending students who test positive home, which runs the risk of infecting family or other members of the community.

Students have expressed their concerns via social media the lack of monitoring and chaotic procedures their universities convey. How long until colleges close for good this year?
