As semester draws to a close, MWSU reports low covid-19 cases

Northeastern shares travel guidance for Thanksgiving break

The University of Pennsylvania, University of Arizona, University of California in Los Angeles and Berkeley, Syracuse University in NY, and the University of MI are among the increasing number of schools ending all in-person classes for the semester after Thanksgiving.

In the message, she said, "As our Fall Semester draws to a close, we are actively planning for the Spring Semester when students return in January". Many Pennsylvania universities have already planned to do so, with some adjusting their calendars so students would be taking their final exams after the Thanksgiving break.

"You bring them on board, [and] you keep them as safe as you can during the time they're there", said Lawrence. The holidays present a significant challenge.

Manhattanville College and Marist College are also providing testing in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. Particularly if the parents have preexisting medical conditions or other things that put them at risk.

Baker and other education officials have emphasized in recent weeks that schools have not become superspreading locations for the coronavirus, as some in the community had feared when the academic year began for most in September.

"The approval of a COVID readiness plan really opens the door for us to be able to safely welcome [international students] for them to be able to start their experience", associate vice-president of enrolment management Chris Busch told CBC News. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, many students opt for testing before they travel home to their families. Colleges and universities have to do their part by testing all students before they leave, informing them about quarantine rules, and keeping classes online between Thanksgiving and Winter Break.

Students can also avoid gatherings during the holiday season by shopping online rather than in person and ordering takeout from restaurants instead of dining indoors, Johnson said. The week before, the university shut down its Delta Upsilon fraternity house through summer 2021, for hosting a large, unmasked Halloween party.

As Thanksgiving approaches, The Ohio State University is trying to accomplish two potentially conflicting goals: send students back home, but don't contribute to the spread of COVID-19.

The university cited surging virus rates across the state and nation. With more than double the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases on campus during November, the Seattle U community is feeling the firsthand effects of the ongoing pandemic.

Binghamton University announced Tuesday that it will switch to remote learning for the second time this semester. A student who asked to remain anonymous agreed that for students taken to quarantine, communication was of utmost importance to provide a general peace of mind.

Remote-only instruction for Binghamton University students will resume Wednesday.

The governors say if colleges and universities do reopen for in-person instruction during this period, all returning students should receive COVID-19 tests and comply with relevant isolation and quarantine protocols.

While some live in Canada, for those who live at home attending online students can be hard due to "electricity outages or poor Internet access", along with different time zones, the university stated.

"We've developed a comprehensive plan to ensure the safety and well-being of both our worldwide students and the broader community", said U of W Vice-President of Enrollment Management Christopher Busch.

Another step students can take to protect themselves from either virus is purchasing a humidifier for their bedrooms and setting it to 50 percent, which will prevent cold weather from drying out their throat and nose, Bettiker said.
