The Ohio State University says 228 students received an interim suspension for violating the school's guidelines regarding large gatherings amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last week, the university announced students who did not adhere to social distancing or other safety measures would face disciplinary action.

Students were told they must wear a face mask, practice physical distancing and not to attend or host a gathering of more than 10 people.

Ohio State said those guidelines applied to on- and off-campus.

The university said students would face an interim suspension for attending or hosting a large gathering.

A spokesperson with Ohio State said these suspensions were related to gatherings reported between Wednesday and Sunday but some students have been cleared.

On August 27, Ohio State said approximately 120 of the suspensions had been lifted because the students were able to show they did not go to or host a gathering.
