The University of Wisconsin-Madison has directed nine off-campus sororities and fraternities to quarantine for 14 days.

In addition, all live-in Greek Life participants must be tested for COVID-19 between September 8 and September 11, according to the release and email.

The university said in a news release Friday that 38 of the 420 students in them had tested positive for coronavirus by Thursday.

The statement also says the university will require all live-in members of greek life organizations to be tested, a departure from the testing plan that forms the basis of the UW's "Smart Restart" policies, which stated that only UW Housing employees and residents would be subject to mandatory testing. According to PHMDC, students who violate the quarantine and isolation orders face a fine up to $10,000 and involuntary quarantine.

According to the health department in Dane County, since the pandemic began, about one-and-a-half percent of coronavirus patients in their 20s in Dane County have been hospitalized.

Since the beginning of the fall semester, many universities across the country have experienced a sharp rise in their student population's COVID-19 cases. Purdue made getting a Covid-19 test a requirement for living or attending class on campus.

Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Lori Reesor said UW is committed to addressing concerns and risks quickly in order to keep everyone in the community as safe as possible. The university later sent a press release announcing the directive.
