    You would think these students would have known this would happen. Most schools are hypersensitive about this right now.

    FOX News reports:

    Columbia University bars 70 MBA students from classes after trip to Turks and Caicos

    Columbia University has temporarily banned 70 students who traveled to Turks and Caicos in violation of the school’s travel policy, according to a report.

    “The Turks & Caicos trip was a group event that violated this policy and thus was met with disciplinary action,” university spokesman Christopher Cashman told CNN.

    Cashman didn’t say when the trip took place.

    “All academic- or work-related travel, domestic or international, is suspended” for the fall semester, according to an online description of the school’s COVID-19 travel policy.

    Cashman said the banned MBA students aren’t allowed on campus until Dec. 1, and that they must attend classes remotely.

    “All of this is being done to protect the broader health of our community,” he told CNN. “Thankfully, to date, our positive case rate remains low.”

    They’re hypersensitive even though people in their 20s are vanishingly unlikely to contract covid-19 and thus are unlikely to spread it.

    So no punishment and only one week of remote classes which are probably mostly remote anyway. Expect more of this.
