WashU announces fall 2021 plans

Chancellor Andrew D. Martin and Provost Beverly Wendland released a message today outlining plans for the fall 2021 semester.

As they wrote, the plans “are based on what we know now. It’s important to keep in mind that some details may continue to evolve as conditions change regionally and nationally. We will keep you informed of any significant updates.

“Our COVID Monitoring Team continues to keep a close eye on conditions in the St. Louis region, and with their guidance, we have determined that we will be able to resume most of our regular, in-person activities this semester. This is not to say it will be an entirely ‘normal’ start to the academic year.

“As expected, due to such factors as the delta variant of COVID-19 and regional vaccination rates, we will need to continue to implement, at least in part, some of our public health requirements such as masking and self-screening in order to protect our community. We will adjust our policies as necessary and appropriate in the weeks and months ahead with the hope of removing restrictions when it is safe to do so.”
