Harvard plans to bring some students back to school in the fall,media reported. The Ivy League school said Monday local time that it would allow 40 percent of undergraduates to return to school, while the school will continue its online courses to prevent the spread of the virus. “We know that it is impossible to reopen the campus without a vaccine or effective clinical treatment,” wrote Larry Bacow, the school’s president. “
The university says it will receive freshmen at its campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts, this fall to help them transition to college life. If the enrollment restrictions continue into the spring, Harvard will allow some fourth-year students to return to campus to complete their undergraduate studies. The university will also allow students who do not have access to on-campus technology to study at home.
Harvard University says it will test all students for a new crown after they arrive, and then require a regular test every three days. Any student who tests positive for the new coronavirus will be quarantined. The university says it has the ability to segregate 250 students at once.
