If anyone is traveling home for the holidays this is a great idea not just for students at Montana State University.

KBZK is reporting that Montana State University is asking students these next few weeks to avoid large gatherings, limit contact with other individuals or essentially pseudo self quarantine.

If you are wondering why they are asking students to do this, it's because Montana State has seen a big rise of cases at the university and with holidays coming up they are doing their best to stop the spread of COVID-19.

To be honest, I am surprised Bozeman schools and Montana State University hasn't gone completely back to online learning due to the huge surge of COVID-19 cases not only in Gallatin County but in Montana.

This is a great idea by Montana State to ask their students to try and quarantine themselves before Thanksgiving but the problem is...can you really trust college students to do the right thing?

Listen, when I was in college you listened to some guidelines but not all the guidelines but no college student has dealt with a worldwide pandemic before. The thing is no one has, and we need to protect ourselves and our loved ones.

So if you plan on traveling for Thanksgiving next week, please try and limit your contact with the general public. We need to try and slow down the rapid rise of new cases because as soon as we do, things will be able to get back to normal.
