CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Austin Peay State University will return to campus this fall with new guidelines amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
APSU said Wednesday that the university would begin a phased return-to-campus process on June 15.
Employees will return to work for a few hours each day. Students and visitors were encouraged to wait until June 22 to visit campus. The public was asked to make an appointment in advance before visiting.
The school’s new guidelines include having employees take their temperature before the start of each day. Everyone on campus will also be required to wear a mask in closed areas, including classrooms and food service venues.
APSU officials said large interior areas and outdoor areas are excluded unless people are within six feet of each other.
