FAIRBORN — Wright State University has been working with state health authorities to develop plans for how the fall semester will proceed and they are hoping to announce what those plans will be by the end of June.

Researchers have already gradually begun to return to campus with appropriate safety protocols, required training, and documentation, Wright State said in an email to the university community Tuesday morning.

The university is hoping the gradual return of researchers and eventually staff will help them learn and make better decisions for the fall.

“You will see new procedures that align with the State of Ohio’s protocols for face coverings, physical distancing, health assessments, hygiene, and cleaning,” they said.

“These new protocols and procedures will help us as we bring other units and operations back to campus.”

Wright State’s ultimate goal is to welcome students who are able back on campus in the fall, but they are continuing to seek guidance from health professionals until a decision will be made at the end of June.
