WMU delays return to in-person classes in 2021
Western Michigan University is delaying the start of in-person classes in 2021 amid the coronavirus pandemic. That comes after the state last week extended COVID-19 restrictions until January 15.
University students will still return to class at the start of the winter semester on January 11, but all classes will be held virtually. In-person classes will resume the following week, on January 19.
Last week’s order by the state’s health department allows in-person classes to resume in January, but strongly advises schools to postpone requiring students to return to campus.
WMU will also delay reopening its residence halls. That is being postponed until Saturday, January 16 – a week later than originally planned.
