University of Wyoming in-person class pause extended
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — University of Wyoming officials say in-person classes will begin for the fall semester no sooner than Monday amid efforts to test for the coronavirus among students and others on campus.
University officials previously halted the start of in-person classes for five days starting Sept. 2, when seven students with symptoms tested positive. University officials say the extension will allow time to see if more students come down with or test positive.
President Ed Seidel says the delay should slow the spread of the virus but only if cases don’t spike as a result of interactions over Labor Day weekend.
