31 March 2020
Four Things to Know
1. More details are available regarding the final grading options for winter semester 2020. Carefully read through the FAQs on wintergrades.byu.edu to help you make the best decisions for your specific situation.
2. BYU is asking members of the campus community to self-report if they have tested positive for COVID-19 or are awaiting the results of a test. There is a new feature on the BYU.edu/coronavirus website that reports the number of confirmed cases among individuals either working on enrolled in classes on campus this semester. If you need to add to that report, fill out this form. This information will help BYU to reduce the spread of the disease by making sure the appropriate areas of campus are cleaned and disinfected.
3. If you are in a group of more than 10 people on campus, you will be asked to disperse. Maintaining physical distance is so important right now. If there is not a necessary need to be together, don't associate with people outside of your residence.
4. UTA is temporarily reducing service starting Monday.
