400-student NYU freshmen dorm on 5th Ave. placed under lockdown after 6 students tested positive for COVID-19

A 400-student NYU freshmen dorm on Fifth Ave. has been set under impermanent lockdown after six understudies tested positive for COVID-19. Every understudy in the dorm was tested on Monday and the outcomes are right now being assessed. Isolated understudies should remain in their rooms consistently, and leave just for a clinical arrangement.

The lockdown comes as video surfaced on net of consecutive end of the week parties at Washington Square Park, a public park situated at the core of NYU’s campus. Right now, there is no proof to propose that these cases are identified with the park parties. NYU believes that these six cases are bound to be identified with a case in that living arrangement lobby that was distinguished by their testing toward the beginning of September.
