Universities In Utah Implement Changes As Students Return To Class

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Monday is the first day back at the University of Utah, Utah Valley University, and Weber State University.

Salt Lake Community College begins classes Tuesday, and students at Brigham Young University and Utah State University will return next week.

That’s 150,000 students back on campus and learning virtually.

There have been some universal changes at all these campuses – such as mandatory face masks, physical distancing and increased hand hygiene.

There are also some differences.

The U of U is asking students to complete online training and to self-report any symptoms. BYU also has mandatory online training that is required before attending class. Those students will also have to use the Healthy Together app to report their health status each day.

Utah State has new instructional videos and guidelines on its website regarding the basics for preventing COVID-19 on campus.

Each of the websites for Utah’s major universities has a COVID-119 section on the homepage that’s easy to navigate and includes useful information.
