UW announces plan for reopening

University of Wisconsin Chancellor Rebecca Blank has released the “Smart Restart” plan that will allow the university’s 45,000 students to return to campus this fall, according to a release.

Fall classes are scheduled to start on Sept. 2 and will offer in-person instruction in many courses until the Thanksgiving recess. Masks, social distancing, limited dorm guests, and reduced in-person dining options are part of the plan to protect the health of the campus community and provide for a traditional campus experience.
