Titled ‘The Cabo 211’, the Austin group is recognized as the largest identified group of infections amidst college students who ignored health advice, including social-distancing rules of Spring break.
Particularly, the University of Texas lectures were canceled on March 13th with instruction for resumption online immediately after spring break. By the time, the UT student traveled to Cabo, not only had the university been shut down, all programs internationally, including the City of Austin declaring a state of emergency were all set.
Within 14days of their return, the University’s west campus was branded as a hotspot and harsh criticism was left under the students’ social media posts.
Pupils who stayed at home or had canceled plans for their Spring Break were infuriated as the pandemic worsen due to the actions of other students.
On the other hand, a detailed Twitter thread had identified the effect the spring breakers could have during their 4-day trip, emphasizing that students were strictly warned about the dangers of the pandemic.
Nevertheless, members had shared pictures using the hashtag #springbreak. Currently, the sorority’s media pages have been made private after an invasion of comments on their postings.
