The positive rate at Boston College is about triple the state average. As a result, the state took over contact tracing on campus.
“Their response has been working with the state, working with the City of Newton, working with the City of Boston.

Boston College to date has been handling the aftermath of this in a good way. But it’s so important all the colleges, not just Boston College, stay very vigilant in testing, in tracing, and also in having spaces for isolation for our students.”READ MORE: Wednesday's Child: 11-Year-Old Zayalani
