NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Tennessee State University said it plans to start classes in the fall but with additional safety protocols.

TSU officials said they’re creating a Fall Course Delivery Task Force to help develop the best strategy for classes this fall.

“We are evaluating and developing operational safety measures, best practices, and academic related logistical options to prepare for the return of students in the fall with the focus on the health and safety of the campus community,” TSU President Glenda Glover told faculty and staff. “These measures will include the ongoing cleaning of campus facilities, the use of larger classrooms and hybrid in-person and online course presentations, and the implementation of appropriate social distancing standards.”

Although the plan is to resume classes, university officials said that will change if the threat of COVID-19 resurfaces.
