Jerry Falwell Jr. last week partially reopened his Liberty University ― an evangelical Christian school in Lynchburg, Virginia ― despite the spread of the coronavirus.

Now, The New York Times reports that nearly a dozen students have symptoms that could suggest infection ― and Falwell is facing the wrath of both parents and critics.

One parent slammed the decision to reopen as "crazy, irresponsible and seems like a money grab." Falwell, as the Times notes, fired back with a tweet calling that parent a "dummy."

Falwell on Twitter said no students on campus are sick with coronavirus, and one off-campus tested positive "from local contacts in the community." He also said the school was "embracing its responsibility to care for students instead of running away.
