BERLIN — Officials in Europe placed several universities under lockdown weeks after they reopened, as coronavirus caseloads climb across much of the continent.
In Switzerland, roughly 2,500 undergraduates at the École Hôtelière de Lausanne, a hospitality school, were told to remain in their dorm rooms or apartments through Monday. Institutions in other countries, including Belgium and Scotland, have imposed similar measures in recent days.
Transmission on campuses in Europe mirror similar trends in the United States and around the world. Several major U.S. universities, including Notre Dame and the University of North Carolina, had to delay or cancel their plans for in-person classes in recent weeks, amid surges in infections.
