12/20—We are providing a clarification to Friday’s (12/17) health advisory on the Omicron variant. (https://we-are.usc.edu).
We are closely monitoring changing conditions and preparing to adapt as needed. We have no plans to go online at this moment or having a remote Spring semester. We are planning to continue in-person instruction for Spring 2022. As part of these plans, like many universities, we are considering the possibility of delaying our in-person return with a temporary remote start in January.
Again, we are closely monitoring the increased spread of the Omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus on our campus, in our community, and nationally at institutions of higher education. We will send out an update with additional information in the coming days.
