PROVO, Utah — Brigham Young University announced Tuesday it is planning for an in-person fall semester starting Aug 31, 2020, with a hybrid of in-person and remote classes.

In a series of tweets, the school shared what it called general plans and will announce updates as the fall semester nears.

The tweets said safety and protection of the BYU community is the first priority, and that the decision is subject to change depending on trends in COVID-19 disease prevalence and guidance from state and local government.

Students in high-risk categories, including older adults and those with compromised immune systems, are strongly encouraged to not be on campus during fall semester. Remote coursework options are available for these students.

Students and employees are required to wear face coverings as follows:

  • In all classroom settings
  • Inside all university buildings
  • During interactions with campus guests/customers
  • In other areas where directed
  • When physical distancing is difficult to maintain
