Residential, dorm-style housing and in-person classes pose a high risk of COVID-19 transmission and will likely result in many localised outbreaks across the country. Colleges and universities that are reopening in person have outlines extensive health and safety programs to prevent the spread of the virus, but their effectiveness has not yet been tested. Bill Gates recently called COVID-19 tests "a complete waste" because the result comes back too slow. If someone has the virus and is tested for it can take days before they receive their results and go into quarantine, giving them ample time to spread the virus. Few people believe that thousands of 18-22-year-olds will return to campus and comply with social distancing and other safety measures. Although students will be asked to sign behavioural contracts with the school, there is little way to effectively monitor all student activity; college campuses are naturally social spaces.
