UWS Coronavirus Precautions Extend Spring Break
The University of Wisconsin-Superior has announced precautions they are taking for the COVID-19 outbreak. They assure their faculty, staff, and community that there are no confirmed cases at the campus or our region at this point. Out of an abundance of caution they are taking proactive steps to better prepare if our region is effected.
Classes will continue until March 14th. Then, they will extend spring break for an additional week. Now spring break will run from March 16-29. On campus classes will resume in an alternative delivery mode on Monday March 30th. Online classes will continue without any interruption. The first possible time face to face campus classes could take place would be April 13th.
They also urge students to leave campus during this time, and arrange to be away from campus when classes resume. Plan to leave for an extended period of time for spring break, and bring any class materials, prescriptions, or other necessary items with you.
Information on the alternative mode delivery of classes will be provided. The emergency response teams will evaluate safety and health risks and update the plan as conditions change.
The university recognizes that students may not be able to leave and change their residence. They will be allowed to stay on campus and services will still run. They do urge any student that can leave to do so.
Also, international travel is cancelled for the semester for trips to CDC level 3 areas such as China, Iran, Italy, and South Korea. More areas may be added to this list.
