Indiana State University officials are considering delaying the start of the spring semester and eliminating spring break to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
The change would start classes January 19, and spring classes would still end April 30, as previously scheduled. Commencement is still May 8.
ISU officials cite travel and interaction with people outside the campus during breaks as reasons for both the delayed start and the elimination of spring break. Additionally, students and staff will be asked to self-quarantine for at least 10 days prior to returning to campus in January.
Communities are canceling, or altering, trick-or-treating guidelines amid COVID-19. Despite that – candy is still flying off store shelves.
