These college students are isolating at a farm where social distancing isn’t required

Most colleges in Maine have resumed in-person classes this fall, but with all kinds of new precautions: masks, travel restrictions, socially distanced classes and “no-party” policies among them. Yet a small group of professors and students at Bar Harbor’s College of the Atlantic has been able to avoid those restrictions, and are meeting in-person with no social distancing required.

The idea began mostly as a joke at a College of the Atlantic faculty meeting earlier this year.
