The University of Arizona announced on Monday, that it plans to expand to Phase Three for in-person classes on March 29. Phase Three allows classes of up to 100 students to meet in-person.
The declining COVID-19 cases in Arizona and on campus allowed university officials to make the decision to move forward with more in-person classes.
“We’re able to project the shift due to continuing lower numbers of COVID-19 in the campus population,” said University of Arizona President Robert Robbins.
Over the last 10 days, the university has recorded 25 new cases of COVID-19 among students, faculty, and staff.
The university began the semester with in-person classes for only those courses that could not be taught remotely like lab classes.
A few weeks ago, UA moved to Phase Two which allowed classes with 50 or fewer students to meet in person.
