“After arriving, students should shelter in place for at least 5 days, whether you live on or off-campus”
Doesn’t this seem like a bit of an overreaction, even bordering on hysterical?

Pennsylvania university tells students to ‘shelter in place’ after arriving on campus due to coronavirus
The University of Pittsburgh is asking that students “shelter in place” in their residence halls after arriving at campus due to an increase in coronavirus cases.
According to the university’s website, students living on and off-campus are instructed to “shelter in place” for at least 5 days after arriving.
“A University-wide shelter-in-place period will begin on Saturday, Jan. 8 on all campuses. After arriving, students should shelter in place for at least 5 days, whether you live on or off-campus,” reads the university announcement.
The announcement instructs students to “limit close contacts,” “interact virtually” and encourages students to use technology to interact with friends.
“If you’ve developed a set of close contacts outside your pod, we highly encourage you to use virtual and technology-based connections for socializing during the shelter-in-place period,” the announcement states.
Under the “shelter in place” guidelines, students are permitted to leave their room or apartment to attend classes, pick up food, exercise safely, work, studying in the library, and shopping “for essentials and medical needs.”
Group work should also be held virtually, according to the announcement.
Other American colleges and universities are also imposing their own “shelter in place” guidelines for students.
