University of California Warns Students They Face Penalties for Partying
The University of California system is warning students that they will face disciplinary action if they attend parties or other large social gatherings that put the health of themselves and their community at risk.
UC president Michael Drake and UC Board of Regents Chairman John A. Pérez made the announcement during an online forum sponsored by the Sacramento Press Club. They declined to detail the specific punishments students would face. Pérez added that reporting a positive coronavirus result would not get a student into trouble.
The University of California is trying to avoid the pitfalls experienced by universities across the country. Although most California colleges are not offering live instruction, a number of students are still living in campus dorms and outbreaks are still occurring.
