Cases in University of Washington student outbreak top 200

SEATTLE (AP) — University of Washington COVID-19 cases among students in more than a dozen sororities and fraternities have topped 200. University spokesman Victor Balta says as of Thursday morning, 215 positive cases have been confirmed among 15 fraternities and sororities. That’s up from 179 cases as of Tuesday, and 131 cases on Friday. Students who have tested positive or have COVID-like symptoms are being told to isolate in their current place of residence, according to the university. At a press conference Thursday, Gov. Jay Inslee expressed frustration about the behavior on Greek Row “that is exposing all of us to great risk.”
