VIRGINIA — As Virginia institutions of higher education look to reopen for the new academic year, Gov. Ralph Northam says schools must prepare plans, similar to the guidance announced for PreK through 12 schools.
Higher education institutions turned to remote options after Northam’s March 30 executive order stopped in-person instruction amid the coronavirus pandemic. But as health restrictions are eased in Virginia phase two of reopening and beyond, higher education institutions can prepare to reopen campuses and offer in-person instruction, Northam said.
Before that can happen, schools must submit a comprehensive reopening plan to the State Council of Higher Education
