“We are anticipating a resumption of in-person instruction for the Fall Semester beginning in August 2020 for all USG institutions,” Morehead wrote in a message Wednesday morning to students, faculty and staff. “However, I would emphasize that this situation remains a fluid one, as the USG monitors developments related to COVID-19 and receives counsel from state public health officials. Guidance could be subject to change, even after our plans are put in place. We will need to remain flexible and patient as we move forward.”
UGA, the state's flagship university, has nearly 40,000 students. The university closed its campuses in March and went to virtual instruction in later that month to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.
