I’m writing with an update regarding the return to in-person classes. Dr. Brown announced on January 10th that all courses would be remote through the end of January. We continue to monitor the spread of COVID -19, and the new variants and case counts of COVID in Michigan remain high.
Yesterday’s numbers show a slight decline in the average of daily cases as well as a decrease in hospitalizations – this is a hopeful sign. Unfortunately, transmission remains high and there has not been enough of a downward trend to prompt a return to in-person classes. To support the stability of our instructional programs and individual courses, classes will remain online for an additional two-weeks. Our new return to in-person date is February 14, 2022. We hope that by that date the decline of cases will be more significant and that we can gather together again with more consistency.
This extension is for classes only; students in practicum, to include the MSP Clinic, must continue to follow the requirements of their site.
Thank you for your ongoing patience and flexibility.
