None of us really knew what to expect when Northwestern announced Wildcat Wellness. Curfews? Regular testing? Perhaps even a giant N95 mask for the Arch?

There were whispers of students being forced to live alone in Bobb for days on end without relief. Some warned of students being administered COVID-19 tests with no hope of passing. And some even claimed that students were being hunted down and killed for breaking quarantine.
