There are 6 comments on University Urges Students to Stay Safe This Halloween as Coronavirus Pandemic Surges

  1. Just wondering if someone could clarify if the people restriction at BU is now 4 people max for halloween or if it is still under 25 people.

    Obviously not planning on having a 24 person party or any party at all but it is not super clear if they are going to be suspending students left and right this weekend!

  2. Word to people managing this business:

    The published advice that we are getting has numbers all over the place. Some articles say we need to be under 25 people, now it is 4 people. I’m living in the dorms and some dorms are punishing us for being in groups of 10 and the study rooms are 5. None of these numbers make sense! How can I have 10 people in my room with my roommate but can’t go out with more than 3 other people for the weekend. Corona numbers are going up and you’re asking us to show our green badges to get into the dorms but not changing these numbers?

    YOU are NOT being consistent and WE are being punished for it.

  3. This is so disappointing to see BU fail time and time again to get its act together. At this point we have heard multiple different versions of BU guidelines, and they are changing more and more often. It’s a really shame for a school like BU to fail when it comes to common sense. However, the email sent by Dean Elmore on Wednesday really was shocking. How can BU ask us to only be with 3 other people, when there are dorms on campus that have more people living in one room. Are people going to be suspended for sleeping in their own beds, will BU suspend every students seen walking back from a 3v3 basketball game. How does BU think this is anyway fair to force upon students, especially since it can’t even control their professors and staff from bring covid to the campus. From the start BU has been only about getting tuition from students at the lowest cost possible. That means kicking people off for having only one violation. They are just in it for the money, and this sporadic change of rules is not about safety, it’s so they can cash in and ignore the actual requests from the students.

  4. It is thoughtful of our Supreme Leader Baker to forego cancelling Halloween. So kind of the Benevolent Leader to let the peasant children have their socially distanced fun. When will the university encapsulate each student and faculty member in their own plastic bubble to keep them safe from all germs?

  5. Boy its gonna be great when the cases explode this winter! Better grab your blankie libs, we better be sooo scared of a virus that kills almost 0 young people

    1. FO Luis. F……O….. Good for you… GOOD FOR YOU… that you’re in a low risk category! GOOD FOR YOU! Bad for your that you are such an ignorant uninformed f—- that you don’t realize that asymptomatic youth running around not knowing they have the virus can STILL give the virus to high-risk people and kill them. Guess what kiddo…. your actions have implications for OTHER PEOPLE. You ignorant sh– If the tables were turned, and old people were unaffected but young people were, you would be freaking out. But you are just an ignorant little pr–k. So you don’t give a shit about others, do you? Go ahead sh–bag. Prove I’m wrong.
