There have been more than 40,000 cases of Covid-19 among students, faculty and staff at colleges and universities across the country. The number represents cases that CNN has reported so far -- and is likely higher due to a lag from schools that update their data every few days.
With social life trickling back to life on campuses, coronavirus outbreaks have hit places students congregate such as fraternities and sororities, where some have continued to gather despite remote learning.
A cluster of Covid-19 cases was linked to a fraternity party at the University of New Hampshire last weekend. More than 100 people attended the August 29 party and few wore masks. Eleven people connected to the party have tested positive for the virus, university officials said.
