On Monday, the University of Oregon announced that it is planning to be open for in-person instruction this fall. But campus instruction will look different.

For the fall, UO President Michael Schill said they are looking to reduce the density in offices, classes, residence halls, and dining facilities. There may also be an expansion of online classes, as well as other academic changes.

UO is also hoping to complete intensive cleaning, as well as testing and contact tracing for students and employees.

Schill said their fall plans will comply with Governor Kate Brown’s emerging strategy to reopen Oregon, as well as guidance from the Oregon Health Authority and Lane County Public Health.
