The fall semester is soon approaching and local Universities are making sure their students are safe on campus.
The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley has implemented safety protocols to avoid COVID-19 outbreaks before the first day of class next week.
During the university’s move-in day Thursday, students were asked to remain in their vehicles while waiting to receive the keys to their dorms.
Though masks are not required in residential halls or on campus, UTRGV officials say they’re encouraging everyone to wear one.
In-person and online classes begin Monday, Aug. 23.
