Elon University COVID-19 Alert Level is now in Level 2, or moderate alert level, after 21 student-athletes tested positive for the coronavirus.
The university said it is suspending athletics and recreation activities, as well as in-person student club meetings. 21 of those cases are student-athletes.

At least 28 students at Western University have tested positive for COVID-19.
At the request of the Government, social and club activities on campus will be suspended until further notice. "Creating community is one of Western's strengths, and we know our students desperately want to have some on-campus experiences".

Both sides accepted the compromise to protect the open border, which helps underpin the peace process in Northern Ireland. Former leaders Sir John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and Theresa May have all strongly condemned the move.
The return of college students from around the world to the many campuses and college towns in MA has been the source of much concern in recent weeks, but Gov. Charlie Baker said Thursday that data his administration collects shows that colleges and their students "are doing their part" to limit the spread of the coronavirus. "But, unfortunately, this development means we will be limiting those experiences", said Alan Shepard, president of Western.
On-campus classes will continue; approximately 25 per cent of courses have an in-person component. Access to libraries and other University buildings is being restricted. "We expect our students to comply with public health rules". The UCD gym will also continue to operate and on-campus catering and residences will also remain open.
"Being an educational institution, we're trying to educate people rather than punish them whenever possible", Shepard said.
In Thursday's statement, Shepard expressed concern about students attending parties, at which there seems to be little in the way of physical distancing and adherence to other public health guidelines.
