PITTSBURGH (KDKA ) – Carnegie Mellon University has told students that they have decided to delay the start of in-person instruction by one week.
The decision means that the first two weeks of the spring semester for all students will be remote only.
“Thanks to their efforts, we were able to successfully complete our fall semester by maintaining key mitigation practices such as completing daily self-assessments, practicing physical distancing, and wearing face coverings,” said Daryl Weinert, Chief of Staff, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives. "Now, as we turn our attention to the next semester, it is imperative that we maintain the good behaviors and habits that increased our safety and unlocked the privileges of in-person experiences in the face of this pandemic."
In-person instruction will begin on February 15.
Carnegie Mellon's complete plan can be found on their website.
