CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - A new study suggests “young adults” are the biggest COVID spreaders in the US.

Spring break is around the corner, and some institutions of higher learning may or may not allow students the week vacation.

At Laramie County Community college the Dean Of Students says the school is making it’s call on Spring Break based on health department recommendations.

“For us we have plans to have a Spring Break. We like to watch the numbers and make data driven decisions. That may change.” Laramie County Community College, Dean of Students, Dr. James Miller said.

According to school officials, a good portion of it’s student population lives off campus, which cuts down on risk of COVID impacts.

“We always ask our students to be mindful of what they are doing and the risk they take. We do that every year no matter if there’s a pandemic. We ask them to be careful when they come back on campus and this mainly for our students who live on campus.”

LCCC’s Spring break is scheduled for March 15-19. Dr. Miller concluded saying, the college is testing students upon their return from break and will continue to closely monitor ways to limit the virus spread.
