ROANOKE, Va. (AP) — The president of the University of Virginia has announced new COVID-19 restrictions which he describes as mostly preemptive because students have been doing the right thing.

The Daily Progress of Charlottesville reports UVA president Jim Ryan announced the new restrictions on Tuesday, and they went into effect on Wednesday.

Among the new restrictions is a reduction in the number of students allowed to gather from 15 to five. Ryan said if students don't follow the new gathering restriction, additional measures may be taken, including imposition of a curfew. The school is also asking students not to leave Charlottesville for the next two weeks and not to invite outsiders to campus.
