Williams College on Monday began the phased return of its student population for the fall semester with a mandatory test and quarantine period.

Students will be restricted to their dorm rooms for five to seven days, until they have received their second negative test for COVID-19.
The students are coming back to campus on a staggered schedule with several hundred returning each day.
All testing by the college is being reported out on a dashboard on Williams' website.
As of Monday morning, Williams had administered 925 tests of faculty and staff in the first seven days of testing with zero positive results for the virus.
