COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WJZ) — The University of Maryland says any course with more than 50 students will be online this semester.

Officials say that’s to accommodate the six-foot social distancing rule.

University of Maryland says it anticipates about 20 percent of its courses will be at least partially in person, such as labs, performance courses and clinical instructions.


The University says it is still working on what room assignments will look like.

    I thought Trump said the virus is no worse than the flu and just a Dem hoax? He said he has supreme power over the states so he should open schools no masks required – Trump does what he says so schools will all be open and the COVID hoax revealed

    They can open all the schools, but my kids will be home schooled until it is safe for them to go back. College kids may be able to do what they want to, but minors will do what their parents tell them to and no parents I have talked to are going to gamble with their kids’ lives. So maybe kids miss a whole year more of school, at least they will be alive to make it up when it’s safe to do so. So what if kids are all a year older than usual when they graduate, it won’t matter.

    People not working as they usually do may not have the money to send their kids back to private schools or colleges now anyhow. If 2 incomes are now one, reduced or none and the teen has no summer job either, the economics may dictate what happens and not the school or the government.
