Northeastern and Boston University — the two largest universities in the city — plan to bring thousands of students back to campus in the fall for on-campus instruction.

But as coronavirus cases continue to spike in states around the country, those plans are worrying some city officials.

Boston City Councilor Kenzie Bok, who represents Mission Hill, Fenway, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, and the West End, wrote a letter to both universities Tuesday, asking them to abandon their on-campus plans and go entirely online in the fall. We speak with her and WBUR Edify reporter Carrie Jung about what's at stake.
