RADFORD, Va. (AP) - Radford University is mandating a limit of 10 people per gathering on the main campus in response to a recent number of COVID-19 cases which are being attributed to two fraternity parties and another large gathering off campus, the school’s president said Tuesday.

Radford president Brian Hemphill told faculty and staff in a statement that the new gathering mandate is being implemented to take prompt and necessary action, The Roanoke Times reported.

“The University will be monitoring compliance with the new gathering limitation for all main campus students in both on-campus and off-campus environments. This increased restriction and related enforcement on gatherings are being implemented due to student behavior in our broader community,” Hemphill said in the statement.

Hemphill said all campus-based and campus-sponsored activities are subject to the new restriction. Classroom and laboratory instruction, as well as clinical rotations and field experiences, are not included as part of the limitations.
