Universities Consider No In-Person Classes Until 2021

Universities all over the country are now considering canceling in-person classes until 2021...

Among them is Boston University, which has already pulled the plug on all in-person summer classes and activities. Beyond that, the school's coronavirus recovery plan allows for administrators to cancel the fall semester as well.

"The recovery plan recognizes that if, in the unlikely event that public health officials deem it unsafe to open in the fall of 2020, then the university’s contingency plan envisions the need to consider a later in-person return, perhaps in January 2021," a statement issued by Boston University reads.

Harvard is also considering the extended break from in-person classes, says President Lawrence S. Bacow.

He says administrators are considering "lots of different scenarios" because he feels there will still be "a tremendous amount of uncertainty" about where the coronavirus remains a threat.

But over at the University of Arizona, they say they're hopeful students will be able to return to campus for the fall semester.

"We are cautiously optimistic that the fall semester will be able to launch with the normal face-to-face campus experience, but of course we will prioritize the health and well-being of our community in making that decision," the university said in a statement.
