What is the prognosis for high-tech health care? Really looking forward to our #TimesTalksTech conversation this afternoon with @SenBrianSchatz @vivianleemd @vivek_murthy and @ceciliakang. https://t.co/pMvZBIQuxp

The coda to this story is that the University of Alabama, with one of the largest campus outbreaks in the U.S., recently reported a slowing in students testing positive for Covid: 294 students last week compared to 846 the week before: https://t.co/tThlom38Qy

There are also economic imperatives at work in university reopenings, as @mega2e underscores today on The Daily. Some schools, like UNC, didn't invest in testing all students for Covid. Other schools like @Illnois_Alma are testing undergrads 2x per week. https://t.co/xKKF8RFoHw

Universities are going to extraordinary lengths to reopen during the pandemic for many reasons. One central impetus: to give students formative in-person experiences to carry them throughout their lives. Students + parents hope the schools can succeed. https://t.co/obDX50otvO

As @ShiraOvide points out, students at some colleges who made TikTok videos about their bad campus quarantine experiences --filthy conditions, starvation rations, minimal to no supervision-- have shamed some schools into improving their Covid treatment. https://t.co/UZPhcXDyMp

The University of Alabama has since announced it was improving resources for students with corona https://t.co/CnBypVvI7b

It's also an extraordinary story of how Zoie's mom @skinnyblynn, a former ICU nurse, and sister @lizannterry banded together to watch over her on Facetime 24/7 while she was in the U.A. Covid dorm, stepping in as guardians when the university seemed like an absentee landlord. https://t.co/eBtkPu53Lj

In one sense, Zoie's experience with corona at the University of Alabama was typical. Her story illustrates how many schools are sending students with Covid-19 to special campus isolation dorms where they largely leave the kids to fend for themselves. https://t.co/yDc5BY5Wzl

What's it like for students who contract coronavirus at college and get sent to a special Covid-19 isolation dorm? -- Today on The Daily @nytimes, we follow Zoie Terry, a sophomore at The University of Alabama, as she goes back to school and gets corona. https://t.co/BoLF3TnDXA

This just in: 
The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa just reported another 846 student virus cases. 
That means UA is dealing with one of the largest, and fastest growing, U.S. campus outbreaks -- with nearly 1900 students testing positive since classes started 2.5 weeks ago. https://t.co/Ll2cfDmyve

News flash: U Alabama just reported an addition 481 virus cases, bringing the campus total over the last 10 days since classes started to: 1043 off the charts https://t.co/NpKCZI07MV https://t.co/qi2gUppvqH

The University of Alabama System launched a campus Covid-19 tracking dashboard yesterday, revising it several hours later to report only data since August 19.
In both cases, it shows that UA has identified more than 100 new virus cases per day over the last five days. https://t.co/YB5NoyyjUj

This just in: @WaltMaddox, mayor of Tuscaloosa, just ordered the city's bars to close for 2 weeks, the result of virus outbreaks at University of Alabama. UA just opened for classes and, if the spike continues, could soon run out of quarantine dorm space https://t.co/gBdzx0XTPc

One major benefit: once U.A.B. finishes testing the state's college students this month, its lab will be able to process tests for tens of thousands of other Alabamians — a significant increase in testing capacity in a state with high per capita virus rates.

Faculty like @indyfromspace are concerned. Students at the flagship U. of Alabama are partying in droves. Another risk: some schools have limited dorm capacity to one student per bedroom, but U.A.B. is maintaining shared dorm rooms. https://t.co/gDS1RNXXNF

Notre Dame, now experiencing outbreaks, also tested thousands of undergraduates before they arrived on campus. https://t.co/IsLVILB17u

Alabama hopes that the robust effort — including testing, technology, required mask-wearing, social distancing and reduced class sizes — will be enough to hinder the virus on campuses. https://t.co/XJhGOKiPZC

The University of Alabama at Birmingham is leading the effort. U.A.B. developed its own diagnostic test for coronavirus, increasing lab capacity to test 9,000 students samples per day. And it developed two virus safety apps, which many schools are using. https://t.co/u7ATs5qu4j

While UNC and Notre Dame abruptly moved to online learning this week, Alabama is conducting the largest higher ed reopening program in the U.S. — testing up 200,000 students before they return to 59 colleges and universities across the state. https://t.co/obDX50otvO
