Penn State opens on-campus COVID-19 center

To better mitigate and monitor the spread of COVID-19, Pennsylvania State University on Monday opened a new testing lab that will be used for random, daily COVID-19 testing of its students on campus. The Penn State Testing and Surveillance Center, or TASC, will test students who have been selected at random to help the university identify asymptomatic carriers of the virus and monitor the prevalence of COVID-19 on campus. The opening follows a trend marked by similar openings at other universities, including Ohio State University, Vanderbilt University and the State University of New York at Buffalo. Betsy Foresman has the details.

Ransomware delays K-12 reopening in Connecticut

Hartford Public Schools, a pre-K-12 district with about 18,000 students, has delayed the reopening of classes after a ransomware attack disrupted many of the online services it uses. At a news conference Tuesday, Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin called the incident “the most extensive and significant” cyberattack to hit the city in the last five years, with more than 200 of the city’s 300 computer servers were affected by the incident. Officials said they're not sure yet when they'll be able to reopen classes. Cyberscoop's Sean Lyngaas has the details on CyberScoop.


Spotting symptoms with infrared

Alabama State University announced plans last week to install COVID-19 screening stations on its campus to monitor the temperature and vital signs of students and staff to detect possible symptoms of the illness. The stations, which will be installed in five high-traffic areas on campus, use infrared cameras to check users’ temperature and advanced image processing to monitor heart rate. University officials said the new technology will help ASU mitigate the spread of the coronavirus as they collect health data on students and staff who have returned to campus for the fall semester.
