Detailing incidents of large graduation celebrations among American students, Greta Anderson writes that such incidents have made it clear “that protecting students from each other, as well as the larger campus and neighboring communities, will not be limited to classrooms and residence halls.” While some American schools are considering COVID-19 specific amendments to institutional codes of conduct, the author notes that policing student behavior off-campus is decidedly more complicated. Some proposed approaches include school-community collaborations, and educating students on COVID-19 data through awareness campaigns, with some schools taking an approach that mimics on-campus tobacco-ban enforcement.
