INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - With thousands of students across Indiana transitioning back to their homes to finish the academic semester online, health officials are pleading for them to to do so cautiously as the state continues to see record increases in new coronavirus infections and hospitalizations. Many of the new COVID-19 cases across the state are trending back to the 18- to 30-year-old group, Indiana State Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box said during a Wednesday news conference. That's especially concerning as college and university students prepare to go home for the holidays, she said. Box advised students leaving their campuses to "behave as if you have COVID, or have been exposed," and recommended they quarantine at home for 14 days. She also encouraged students to wear a mask inside their house, use their own bathroom when possible and avoid seeing elderly relatives until they've completed a two-week isolation without symptoms of the virus. "And please don't head out to the bars or hang out with all the friends you haven't seen for months," she said. "You need to keep those social bubbles small." Already, a number of Indiana's colleges and universities have started screening students for coronavirus before they head home. University of Notre Dame students must undergo coronavirus testing before they leave South Bend, Indiana, for the winter break. A student who is exposed or tests positive must quarantine on campus for two weeks, and those who don't complete the test can't register for classes in the spring. University officials tightened the testing requirement after students rushed the field to celebrate a football victory earlier this month. Although students at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, won't be required a COVID-19 test before leaving campus, the...
