The News-Gazette’s Ben Zigterman reports:
As it plans for a return to mostly in-person classes, the University of Illinois released its course catalog Monday for the fall semester.
“The vast majority of courses will be offered in-person,” Chancellor Robert Jones said at a meeting Monday.
Only courses with more than 200 students will remain online or in a hybrid format, he said.
While there was an increase in cases on campus last week that Jones expressed concern about, he was pleased with Monday’s announcement that everyone 16 and older in Champaign County is now eligible for the vaccine.
“The downside is that we still are facing a situation where the demand for vaccinations at this moment exceeds the supply,” he said.
The UI hopes to vaccinate all its students before the semester ends in about five weeks.
Jones said there is a “real possibility of getting our students and the rest of our faculty and staff vaccinated before the end of this semester. And that’s going to make a tremendous difference in terms of how we approach the fall semester and beyond.”
Two cases emerged from 3,221 tests Sunday on the UI campus, according to data updated Monday.
The campus’ seven-day positivity rate is 0.16 percent. The total number of cases throughout the pandemic now stands at 6,450.
Over the past week, the campus has reported 85 positive tests — 48 involving undergrads, 11 faculty/staff members, six grad students and 20 classified as “other.”
