Today on “In the Hive,” the plan for Utah’s flagship university to reopen, with various precautions in place, this fall. The University of Utah’s ‘Return to Campus’ plan calls for a hybrid of in-person and online classes. Masks will be required. But what happens if Utah’s sustained spike in coronavirus cases continues? Will the U reevaluate its decision to reopen? What health safety measures are being taken for students, faculty and staff?
