Four months ago, a COVID-19 outbreak was reported at the University of Washington, where at least 121 Greek Life students had been infected with coronavirus.

On November 4, the number of positive cases in the Greek community has reportedly increased to 348, according to a news release from the university.

The cases involve 21 of the 45 Panhellenic and Interfraternity Council chapters. So far, there have been no reports of any students hospitalized due to the virus.

Others who may have been exposed to positive cases, as well as members of fraternities and sororities with positive cases, are also being asked to isolate in their current place of residence and to get tested.
