UA rolls out new protocols to guard against pandemic

How the university plans to minimize the risk of COVID-19 spreading on campus.

Months after the novel coronavirus cleared campuses and instruction went online, the dilemma persists as to how schools can safely bring people back. In less than a month, the University of Arizona will put its plan to the test. This week, Arizona 360 learned more about how administrators plan to minimize the risk of COVID-19, as well as some of the concerns among faculty and students.

In May the university tapped former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona to lead its Reentry Task Force. Carmona explained new protocols in place and what it will take for the UA’s plan to succeed.
