After 65 Syracuse University students tested positive for the coronavirus in recent days because of off-campus gatherings, the university is starting a new initiative to punish students who violate state guidelines.

Between Wednesday and Thursday, 20 more students tested positive for the virus.

Effective immediately, any student who lives off campus and is responsible for a gathering that violates guidelines will face consequences from SU's judicial board. Penalties range from a disciplinary warning to expulsion.

The university said the Carrier Dome will serve as a permanent place for students to get tested. During the past three days, 4,000 tests have been administered.

Campus police are increasing patrols on Walnut and Euclid avenues, along with other popular off-campus party spots.

Vice Chancellor Mike Haynie says there is no evidence so far that the virus has spilled over into the Syracuse community.
