Penn State announces Spring 2021 schedule

The university has released information about Spring term. It will start later in January, (the 18th) end in April (the 30th, instead of May) and will not include a Spring Break, although it will observe MLK Day as it has in the past. Study Abroad programs run by PSU will also be cancelled. Looks like courses will still be offered as a pile of in-person, online, and combos of both.

The students in isolation seem to recover well and the hospital is not seeing any big increase in cases, and while there are lots of new cases every day, it doesn’t seem to be out of control at this point. The university’s annual flu shot program will be done as drive throughs, which will be weird, I think.
