The New York Times tracker reports positive coronavirus cases at more than 1,400 colleges and universities nationwide—and not one state is unscathed.
Overall, 35 states have each reported over 1,000 coronavirus cases on college and university campuses.
Texas leads the way with over 14,500 cases among 82 schools. The Texas schools with the biggest case numbers are Texas Tech University (1,768), Texas A&M University (1,661), the University of Texas at Austin (1,361), and Baylor University (1,102).
Another outcome of the pandemic is how, where, and when students can vote safely. Many colleges that started with in-person classes have sent students home amid outbreaks. Others have canceled fall break—a time when many students planned to vote in their home state.
With voting registration deadlines looming, find out how to vote in whichever state you’ll call home on November 3.
Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands also report low numbers. Puerto Rico has recorded two cases on one campus, and the Virgin Islands have seen only three cases at one school—with no increases since our last report.
