Boston news media covers COVID-19 testing at UMaine
University of Maine President Joan Ferrini-Mundy was interviewed by WBTS (Channel 10 in Boston) about the return of students to the UMaine campus for the first time since March. “We’re a university, we’re about bringing people together in campus settings and communities so my biggest hope is that when we start classes next week, it will be going smoothly,” Ferrini-Mundy said. So far, one positive coronavirus case has been identified among 1,300 tests administered at the campus drive-through testing site. Five other coronavirus cases have previously been diagnosed among students in the University of Maine System, including four affiliated with the Orono campus who were not screened at the mobile testing site.
