“In the last days we had a re-outbreak of 847 cases. So what changed? That the students went back to school and are having parties, ”Robbins said at a virtual press conference.

Given the reappearance of the 847 new cases, the PCHD asked the university authorities to take urgent measures to prevent more infections.

“This is really serious now. That’s enough. This is your last chance for you to take orders, ”Rector Robbins said in a serious tone of voice, warning his students to stay in their houses or dormitories.

The rector informed that they will only be able to circulate through the campus university personnel indispensable for the development of school, administrative and security activities.

According to Robbins, at the time classes resumed normally in the last week of August, there were fewer than 5,000 students on the UA campus taking classes at the school.

Now those boys will have to go to virtual classes for at least the next two weeks and whoever circulates without reason on the university campus could face consequences.

“There will definitely be suspensions… there have already been individuals expelled from the university for not following orders, so I hope that a few do not destroy the university’s effort to advance the solution to this problem,” Robbins warned.

However, according to Dr. Theresa Cullen, director of the PCHD, the quarantine order will have some exceptions.

During the next two weeks, no student will be allowed to circulate around campus unless it is for something essential. Filed Under: Arizona Quarantine University.

The exemptions that the health authorities will allow are to go out, with masks, to buy food, medicine, go to work if the student fulfills university employment, medical attention and some classes in which the student presence is essential.

According to the PCHD, the quarantine for the UA applies to all students who live in school residences on campus or have their residence between 6th Avenue to the west, Campbell Avenue to the east, 10th Street to the south and Helen Street to the north.

The PCHD asked students who live within that quadrant to not go out if possible and limit their exposure to other people. In addition, they choose to order food delivery at home.

Despite that, his star quarterback Grant Gunnell sent a public letter on behalf of his entire Wildcats team to the Pacific Conference of the Ten requesting that the season resume in the fall.

“We want to play… it’s hard for us to understand why they can’t find a way, safe for students and athletes, for the season to resume. We want to play ”asked Gunnell.

However, the authorities of the Pacific Conference of Ten consider that it is not safe to resume the season in the midst of the salt crisis that is hitting the world.
