Coronavirus Watch Indiana

Ind. (WEHT) — Two Indiana universities made announcements about fall semester plans Thursday.

In a letter to the IU community, President Michael McRobbie said “it would not be realistic or even responsible to promise a full resumption of in-person activity in the fall.” He says the potential for COVID-19 reoccurrence will remain until a vaccine is widely deployed, and the school is planning for five scenarios for the 2020-21 academic year. A restart committee has been formed and is tasked with recommending when and under what conditions can IU restart its educational, research and other activities.

At Ball State, President Geoffrey Mearns released a video saying the safety of the campus community is of paramount importance. Mearns says they are actively preparing to welcome students back to campus in the fall and following state and federal public health guidelines. A task force has been formed to prepare all aspects of campus operations.
