UW Plans for Coronavirus Testing, Online Classes

UW students who are heading home for Thanksgiving will need a coronavirus test before they leave, and after they get back.

The university yesterday said it is requiring tests for all students who leave campus over the holiday break. UW President Tommy Thompson says students risk bringing the virus back to campus, and he wants to avoid another surge if he can.

When students at UW-Eau Claire leave campus for Thanksgiving, they won’t be coming back til January. The university yesterday said it is moving classes online after the upcoming holiday break. In fact, all UW satellite campuses are making the move. University leaders fear the trip home and back to campus will become a super-spreader event.
