University Of Maine Students Begin Returning To Campus

PORTLAND, Maine - University of Maine students are returning to campus for the first time since being sent home in March. Monday marked the start of move-in week in Orono just days after three students tested positive for the coronavirus. Two students are roommates and live off campus, and one student lives in a fraternity house. All three are showing mild symptoms and are quarantining.

On Monday, a returning, out-of-state University of Maine Law student was quarantining after testing positive, as well. UMaine President Joan Ferrini-Mundy said the screening strategy is "working as intended."
