24 Aug CBS 3 Philly: Penn State asking students to monitor sense of smell to fight COVID-19 as classes resume
Students are back on campus with classes resuming today at Penn State. The university will be conducting random testing for COVID-19 and has taken a number of precautions to keep the virus from spreading.
Penn State students are being asked to pay attention to their noses. Not being able to smell is a symptom of COVID-19.
One professor is planning on sending scratch-and-sniff postcards to students and there will be flower arrangements around campus. Fighting the coronavirus could be all about smelling the roses.
