University of Arizona classes resume August 24, but only a few students will be on campus. Provost Liesl Folks wrote in an email Monday that so-called stage one classes will be limited to laboratories, performance, or medical subjects, where students must be physically present.
Later, when conditions allow, the university will go to stage two, with in-person classes for up to thirty students. Once those are proceeding without complications, Folks says the university will start to phase in larger classes.
Folks says the transition from each stage to the next will be guided by the progress of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
