UVM spells out plans for in-person fall semester - Seven Days

Masks, masks everywhere at UVM this fall - except in private workspaces and dorm rooms.

"Among the more notable changes are a tweak to the university's academic calendar, a mask-wearing requirement and a push to thin out residence halls in the name of social distancing. The goal, university leaders say, is to preserve some aspects of the traditional academic experience while protecting employees and students from coronavirus outbreaks. The university will provide "safety kits" for employees and students that will include supplies such as hand sanitizer and facial coverings; masks must be worn whenever students or employees are outside "their private workspaces or residence hall rooms," Garimella wrote. To cut down on the amount of time spent on campus, the university has decided to end in-person classes on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
