Indiana College Students Heading Home

Indiana college students are heading home.

The state health department says they should be extra careful not to turn themselves into coronavirus superspreaders.

Universities are finishing the semester at home after Thanksgiving break.

Several schools are testing students for COVID before they go home, and state health commissioner Kristina Box is urging others to follow suit.

But Box cautions the virus typically doesn’t show up on tests for five-to-seven days after exposure.

She says students returning home should act as if they’ve got coronavirus and quarantine for the first two weeks, wearing a mask even at home.
