COVID-19 Rates Increased Where In-Person College Classes Were Held

Educational Objective
To identify the key insights or developments described in this article
1 Credit CME

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) incidence increased by 56% in counties where colleges held in-person classes after the start of last fall’s school year, the CDC reported.

As COVID-19 incidence generally declined in US counties in early August 2020, incidence rates increased among young adults aged 18 to 22 years. Such increases have been identified as a driving force of infection among adults older than 60 years, who are at increased risk of severe illness and death. To determine whether large universities’ instructional format—in-person or remote classes—was associated with COVID-19 incidence in the surrounding communities, CDC investigators analyzed data from 101 counties where classes started between July 27 and August 28, 2020.
