The Nevada System of Higher Education says it has begun planning to resume in-person classes at Nevada’s universities for the fall 2020 semester, according to a statement.
Plans are also being laid out that could see students returning to limited in-person classes as early as this summer, after July 1.
“Several options are on the table, including a hybrid approach with a mix of remote and in-person instruction,” NSHE said in the statement. “For instance, a science class might be designed to include online lectures and in-person lab sessions that follow established social distancing measures.”
Other safety measures could include reduced class sizes, mask use and increased testing availability.
Student housing and dining are also being evaluated, and there could be changes there that reflect appropriate health and safety precautions.
