Students at Morehouse and Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia will not be returning to their campuses this fall due to recent spike in coronavirus cases in the state. The authorities announced on July 20. So the question on if the schools will reopen their campuses for the Spring 2021 semester arises and no answer to that.
Announcing the shift, Spelman President Mary Schmidt Campbell said in a statement, ‘because of the worsening health crisis, we have reluctantly come to the realization that we can no longer safely sustain a residential campus and in-person instruction. With a sense of great disappointment, I now share with you our decision that all instruction for the fall of 2020 at Spelman will be virtual.’
Georgia reported at least 3,243 new cases on July 19, taking the total tally in the state to at least 143,123, according to data released by the Georgia Department of Health DOH. In the state, there are now at least 3,173 deaths, according to the DOH.
