Amid the rapid spread of the coronavirus across the United States, large gatherings like festivals and sporting events are being canceled and postponed. Now, historically Black colleges and universities are following suit and implementing campuswide protocols to ensure the safety of faculty, staff and students.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC, there have been 1,215 cases of COVID-19 and 36 deaths.
The states that have been impacted the worst by the coronavirus are ones with few to no HBCUs, like New York, California and Washington. However, other states with a large HBCU presence are closely monitoring the situation.
