A second residence hall at Marquette University has been placed on quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
People living in Cobeen Hall will need to remain in their rooms for 14 days, which went into effect at 11 p.m. Friday, September 25, 2020. It will run to 11 p.m. on October 9.
The decision by the university, in collaboration with the Milwaukee Health Department, is due to an increasing cluster of virus cases from people living in the hall.
People living in Cobeen Hall are being asked to do the following:
- E-mail their professors to let them know they will not be able to attend classes in person for the next two weeks.
- Only use the dining services in Cobeen Hall by carry-out only.
- Anyone who has not been tested for COVID-19 will need to get one. Details on possible testing done on campus are forthcoming.
- Residence will need to do the COVID Cheq every day.
- Anyone who decides to leave the hall will need to remain off campus for 14 days. They will only be allowed back on campus if they can provide a negative COVID-19 test within three days of their return.
