SAN ANGELO, TX –– A week after Angelo State University welcomed students back to campus, the school announced classes will shift to a hybrid format for the next three weeks as COVID-19 cases continue to rise.
According to data released by the university there are currently 57 active cases. The university has confirmed 85 cases since the start of the month.
Starting Monday, August 30th, classes primarily held in-person will be held in a hybrid format until September 17th.
While all campus services will remain available, students, faculty, and staff will be required to complete their daily wellness screening before coming to campus or leaving a residence hall.
Students who do not pass the wellness check should contact their instructors, just as they would for any illness.
Students who do not feel comfortable returning back to in-person classes are encouraged to look for online class opportunities or seek an ADA accommodation.
Masks are strongly encouraged and washing hands is highly encouraged to prevent the spread of all germs.
Anyone who attended events on campus will be required to show a wellness screening badge and have their temperature checked before entering the facility.
Visitors will also be required to complete the wellness check when they visit the school.
