The school reopened last week, now male senior students who attended off-campus parties are leading the spike

Notre Dame is canceling in-person classes and moving them online for at least two weeks after seeing a spike in coronavirus cases. On Monday, one week after classes began, 80 students tested positive out of 418, or 19% of students tested.

The rash of cases has been linked to at least two off-campus parties, and the majority of students testing positive are senior undergraduates, mostly male, said school spokesman Paul Browne.

In remarks he was slated to deliver Tuesday afternoon, Notre Dame President Rev. John Jenkins is announcing that if the number of cases continues to climb, he could order students to leave campus and return home. He may decide to take that step before the two week period is over.

Notre Dame set up an extensive testing system as part of its efforts to bring students back on campus. All of the nearly 12,000 students were tested before they returned to campus to start class on Aug. 10. Of that group just 33 students (0.28%) tested positive.
