The very smart and educated people of Yale have decided to quarantine all of their students for the next month due to the very scary Omicron variant of Covid-19.
The decision was made by Yale administrators and the Yale Daily News shared the decision on their Facebook page.
"Yale announced its plans for the start of spring semester in an afternoon email. Students can return to campus anytime between Jan. 14 and Feb. 4. They must quarantine in their residences (except to pick up food and test) until they receive results of an arrival test. Yale instituted a campus-wide quarantine until Feb. 7 or (which may be extended depending on public health conditions). Students may not visit New Haven businesses or eat at local restaurants (even outdoors) except for curbside pickup. Dining is grab-and-go until public health conditions improve. Yale is currently set to resume in-person classes on Feb. 7 — after two weeks of remote instruction."
Is this Yale or jail?
Students can come to campus but they aren't allowed to leave their homes except to pick up food or get a Covid test. Those are the only two exceptions.
You can't even eat outdoors at a restaurant without breaking the Covid protocol at Yale.
They aren't even starting in-person classes until the middle of February. Because of "public health conditions" which is just nonsense.
So the folks who attend Yale are paying 80 grand a year to be locked in their dorms and attend virtual classes for a month. They can't even go shopping without fear of being expelled. The entire campus is in quarantine.
This is insanity.
And these are supposedly the smartest people around – the ones going to school here and the ones running the Ivy League institution!
