Colleges planning for unique, on-campus experience this fall in response to COVID-19

Local colleges are planning for a fall semester.

Even if they are a little uncertain about what it looks like compared to the ‘norm’.

Nazareth College is aiming for an on-campus semester. Last week, Cornell University announced that they would have an on-campus experience, but start a month later than normal.

“We’ve been working with health professionals on developing a screening mechanism using an app where every morning you enter data into an app and either get a green pass or a red pass,” said Daan Braveman, the President of Nazareth College to 13WHAM. “If it’s green, you can go to class. If it’s red, you go to a health center and determine what needs to be done.”

Walking around campus could come with new guidelines, but managing the flow is people is the broad topic being tackled by administrators at these facilities.

“How do you manage the flow in and out of classes? We’re talking about having one-way hallways, so people aren’t walking at each other, limited access to buildings,” added Braveman.

A committee has been identified to come up with a plan.
