We will continue with in-person instructions this week and next week. These are the final two weeks of in-person instruction this semester. We will shift to remote learning for the completion of the fall semester beginning Nov. 23.— #BearDownMaskUp (@uarizona) November 9, 2020
According to a UArizona tweet, the remainder of the fall semester will shift to remote learning.
UArizona has had students on campus for in-person learning since Aug. 24.
According to UArizona spokeswoman Pam Scott, the university made the announcement in October:
We made this announcement way back that students would stay through Thanksgiving break and then go home until Spring Break. There are only 8 instructional days after the Thanksgiving break. Most news outlets reported it following the Oct. 12 briefing. That was the reason for the Thanksgiving Travel Survey so students could let us know their plans.
