Project Restart is our campus-wide effort to return to on-campus living, learning and working. Numerous teams have been working around the clock crafting plans and developing scenarios and contingencies so we can be flexible to adapt to circumstances that are bound to change. Our health and safety procedures will be guided by the LA County Department of Public Health and our own internal health policy leadership team, and they will focus on safeguarding individuals and the community.
While we still have many details to work out, we are planning for an in-person fall semester for students beginning on Aug. 17, 2020, which is a week earlier than originally scheduled. All classes, including final exams, will end by Thanksgiving. By ending the semester before Thanksgiving, we aim to minimize the spread of the virus, particularly as the flu season commences.
To support this schedule, we will not have a fall break in 2020. Please understand that these plans remain contingent on several factors, including the continued spread of COVID-19 and the health orders from state and local authorities. The situation could change, but we are excited to move forward and to have you back.
As we begin a phased approach toward resuming some on-campus activities, see the progress we have made in a number of areas.
