Some SU students say move in week went smoothly, and they have no concerns this semester when it comes to COVID-19

SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury University students got a warm welcome back this week as they moved back on campus to start their new semester Monday.

We are told some 1,700 students moved in this week.

Students we spoke with said during move in week they did feel safe, as the university made sure to space out move in days.

The students noted that the university spread out the move in days, thereby eliminating any congested clusters.

They also told 47ABC that everyone did make sure to wear their masks and were following precautions.

When asked if they had any concerns about being on campus during a time when COVID-19 cases are rising, and with the new COVID-19 U-K variant spreading, here’s what they said:

“The safety regulations here are pretty good, I mean I feel safe going to eat, hanging out in my room, so I’m not really concerned,” Charlie Romeo, an SU Freshman, said.

“Personally I don’t, but I know other students have concerns, but personally I don’t have any issues with whats going on,” Joshua Pindell, an SU student, said.

We are told that this spring semester will look similar to the fall with more than half of the classes held in-person and half hybrid.

Salisbury University added that this semester they will increase testing frequency and couple it with rapid testing.
