As university students return to campus, schools like Tulane and LSU are now dealing with hundreds of students and staff testing positive for the coronavirus. If the trend continues, universities may face the decision to shut down again. LSU has reported 366 COVID-19 cases since August 15th, Tulane has 224 students who tested positive for the coronavirus. The return to university campuses is not the only thing causing concern over a possible spike in positive coronavirus cases. This upcoming Labor Day could become a COVID-19 spreading event. Labor Day is Monday but traditionally the weekend before is celebrated with parties or large gatherings of family and friends. Even small groups of people at a party increase the risk of contracting the disease. Officials ask citizens to remember to keep a safe distance from others, wear a mask where applicable and wash your hands.
