• recommended that students take an online course about the pandemic that incorporates broad disciplinary perspectives;
• progressive sanctions for behavior violations;
• data surveillance following the cadence of infections;
• text-based COVID-19 Tip Line for reporting behavioral violations;
• wastewater testing;
• policy modifications to assure students are not incentivized to take health and safety risks
• students provided immunity for activities they disclose during contact tracing
