La Crosse’s private Catholic college is carrying on classes as best it can, while the city is one of the hot spots for COVID-19 around the U.S.
Viterbo University does not have any buildings closed, nearly a month into the fall semester, and about half of the classes are happening in-person.
Interim provost Rick Trietley at Viterbo says 76 total cases have been reported on campus, with the peak occurring last week.
Only 25 per cent of the students are living on-campus, and some students have decided to move back home for now.
UW-La Crosse remains in a two-week campus lockdown because of a surge in COVID-19 cases.
