Although the campus will reopen, students, faculty and staff will need to still wear masks, physical distance and keep work and personal spaces clean.

“In the coming weeks and months, we’ll start to take greater strides as we begin to increase our on-campus presence while abiding by all local, state and federal health and safety guidance,” university officials said in a letter to the TU community. “With expanded testing and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, we hope to begin resuming some in-person events and programs on campus as the weather warms up this spring.”
