Northeastern University said Friday it will require students to receive three coronavirus tests before attending fall-term classes, per the Boston Globe.

How it works: Students must get tested as soon as they arrive on campus, again three days later and then once more two days after that. Students must quarantine until they've received their first negative test, and will not be allowed in classrooms until they've had their third.

  • The rules will apply to all students attending classes on-campus, regardless of whether they live in campus housing.

Of note: Northeastern announced in June that students will have a choice to attend in-person classes or opt for virtual learning.

  • Students who do not arrive to campus early enough to complete all three tests will be required to complete their coursework online until the testing process is complete.

Cuomo on Biden win: "The political pressure of denying COVID is gone"

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said that Joe Biden's election victory could bring forth "a different tone" surrounding the coronavirus.

What he's saying: "I think you'll see a different tone now. I think you'll even see some governors start to take a different tone now that Mr. Trump is out of office. I think the political pressure of denying COVID is gone," Cuomo said on ABC's "This Week" Sunday.
