In a news release on Tuesday the school says that they will be following the format that they adapted when they moved all coursework for the end of their winter semester online.
BYU says that all students will be able to complete spring and summer terms without being physically present in Provo and encourages all students to consider returning or staying home if circumstances allow.
They will continue to have on-campus housing for those unable to return home.
How To Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus
COVID-19 coronavirus is transmitted from person to person. It is a virus that is similar to the common cold and the flu. So, to prevent it from spreading:
- Wash hands frequently and thoroughly, with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds.
- Don’t touch your face.
- Keep children and those with compromised immune systems away from someone who is coughing or sneezing (in this instance, at least six feet)
- If there is an outbreak near you, practice social distancing (stay at home, instead of going to the movies, sports events, or other activities.)
- Get a flu shot.
