State College

Leaders at Penn State and from the surrounding community are voicing their concerns about the recent uptick in coronavirus cases and a new, more infectious variant found in State College.

Penn State classes start this week, and as the campus with the largest student body in Pennsylvania kicks off the fall semester, many in State College are concerned that the arrival of tens of thousands of students could mean outbreaks of COVID-19.

Every year in July, two arts festivals bring thousands of visitors to Centre County, Pennsylvania. But as WPSU’s Kristine Allen reports, this year the festivals will come to the visitors.

Penn State is preparing for the return of students to its campuses this fall, and that includes being ready to track cases of COVID-19. As WPSU’s Anne Danahy reports, the state Department of Health says student cases will be counted where they’re living.
