UW-Green Bay to Reopen in Phases, Beginning July 1st
Posted on 6-18-2020
Green Bay, Wis.—The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay announced today an overview of a two-phased plan to bring faculty, staff and students back to all four UW-Green Bay campuses (Green Bay, Marinette, Manitowoc and Sheboygan) for the Fall 2020 semester.
Faculty and staff who need to be on campus to do their jobs will be able to return to their offices and work spaces on July 1st, 2020. The plan also includes the opening of some outdoor spaces used by the public as of July 1st.
It’s the first return of UW-Green Bay employees since mid-March, when, because of COVID-19, students, faculty and staff were asked to vacate campus and study/attend classes and work from home.
Many employees will continue their work virtually throughout the summer and into the fall to minimize the number of people on campus.
In a follow-up announcement, University officials shared a document Thursday (June 18th) which outlines expectations and guidelines for Phase 1. The plan also includes the opening of some outdoor spaces to the public beginning July 1st.
