April 7th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

Masks are back at some universities due to rising COVID-19 cases at their respective campuses. Johns Hopkins University is reinstating its mask mandate following a spike in COVID-19 cases among students. The school said nearly 100 undergraduate students have tested positive for the virus since the start of the month and that they will test students twice a week through April 22 to combat the rising cases. Georgetown University in Washington is also putting its mask mandate back in place temporarily due to a rise in covid cases.
