University of St. Thomas students and faculty who have opted to return to campus for in-person instruction and hyflex courses are allowed to today, Sept. 28.
According to an email to students from Associate Vice President of Student Affairs David Hao, the classrooms must operate at 25% capacity for the first week, but may increase later.
“If that first week goes well, we will increase the classroom capacity to 45% to allow for sufficient distancing,” Hao wrote.
Moreover, Hao said classroom locations may change, so be sure to check myStThom to see where in-person classes are located.
As mentioned in a previous story, students, faculty and staff are required to check in, daily, either at the UST Police Office, the Hertzstein Business Office, or the Mail Room located on Colquitt St. to take a survey and have their temperature checked. Those who pass the check will receive a UST mask and a “daily” wristband.
UST classes have been held online since March to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
“Please remember to follow the instructions on signage around campus reminding everyone to keep a physical distance of six feet, and to wear your mask at all times,” Hao wrote.
