INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana public health officials on Sunday reported a fourth consecutive day of 1,000 new confirmed COVID-19 cases and one new death.

The Indiana State Department said state has had 74,328 cases and 2,835 deaths since the start of the pandemic. More than 841,000 tests have been administered in Indiana.

Students at Indiana University began moving in Sunday, which will be spread out over 12 days. Before moving in, students have to undergo a COVID-19 test. Tents will be set up in Memorial Stadium, according to The Herald-Times.


Those who test positive will have to return home and isolate themselves for 10 days before coming back to campus. If they can’t return home, they’ll be assigned to isolation on campus.

Students who are living off campus will also have to get tested before they arrive.

Classes begin Aug. 24.
