Guest Host: Jen Golbeck

Last month, a University of Maryland student died from adenovirus. Since then, more cases of the virus have been reported on campuses in the DMV. The illness presents as a common cold but can escalate quickly.

What is adenovirus and how is it contracted? Today, we discuss what universities and school systems can do to keep students safe from highly contagious illnesses.
