The announcement happened just eight days after the beginning of the fall semester, according to news reports.
The university said in a post on its website that it had recorded a steady increase in confirmed coronavirus cases among students, mainly seniors living off-campus. University of Notre Dame President Father John Jenkins also asked students to help in identifying others who had been violating safety protocols.
