Notre Dame hires security to make sure quarantined students don’t leave home

The University of Notre Dame has taken new measures to ensure that students who are supposed to be in quarantine remain in quarantine without disruption.

According to the South Bend Tribune, after some students were caught breaking the school’s new COVID-19 guidelines and leaving their quarantine or isolation location, Notre Dame hired security to specifically monitor students in quarantine.

The university contracted the new security personnel from the Monterrey and VSS Security groups to keep an eye on the quarantined students around the clock. It is also partnering with the Indiana State Police Alliance, which will have troopers keep watch overnight until 3:30 a.m.

University spokesman Dennis Brown told the South Bend Tribune that the specific localities of the security will be based on each property they are assigned to and that the officers are monitoring to see if students who are under quarantine are leaving their rooms. He also added that for those who do violate the guidelines, a disciplinary process will begin.

Allegedly, those living in the university’s newest building received a letter that security measures would increase in their building due to the number of complaints of students going out against the school’s coronavirus guidelines.

One student, Megan O’Gorman, a junior who has been placed in quarantine, told the South Bend Tribune that she had to wait eight days to hear back that she tested negative and that the instructions given to her were unclear.
