main universities not likely to return to campus this fall

At the University of California, which has 10 campuses across the state, “it’s likely none of our campuses will fully re open in fall,” Stett Holbrook, a spokesperson for UC, told CNN in an email on Tuesday. Holbrook said Wednesday that UC is “considering a mixed approach for classes, with some student instruction potentially to be delivered in classrooms and labs while other instruction may remain remote.” A decision is expected mid June, Holbrook said.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, a key member of the White House’s coronavirus task force, told Congress on Tuesday that it is a “bridge too far” for schools to expect a vaccine or widely available treatment for Covid 19 by fall reopening time.

“First and foremost is the health, safety and welfare of our students, faculty and staff, and the evolving data surrounding the progression of Covid 19 current and as forecast throughout the 2020 21 academic year,” White said in making his announcement.

Potential exceptions at CSU may include nursing students who need clinical training to be on track to get licensed to work in health care, White said, or students who need access to equipment for their training.

Students who need to continue research in labs will also continue forward under rigorous safety standards. White said students may need to work in shifts, wearing personal protective gear.

Rigorous health and safety requirements will be in place, such as sanitizing and spreading students out. Instead of 15 students per class, it may be five students, he suggested.

Some of CSU’s 23 campuses may continue to offer remote learning only.

“On some campuses and in some academic disciplines course offerings are likely to be exclusively virtual,” White said.

University of California “will be exploring a mixed approach with some material delivered in classroom and labs settings while other classes will continue to be online,” Holbrook said.

California was the first state to issue a statewide stay at home order, effective March 19. Like many other schools, colleges and universities across the nation, UC and CSU began suspending in class learning in March.

## ## Some universities will resume classes

Around the country, most other colleges and universities are still trying to figure out what instruction will look like in the fall, with some saying a decision will be made later.

Universities in at least six states have said they expect to hold classes on campuses in the fall: the University of Alabama; the University of North Carolina System; Texas Tech University; the University of Tennessee; the nine campus University of Louisiana system; and Morgan State University in Maryland.

The North Dakota State Board of Higher Education last month voted unanimously in favor of a motion supporting the return of students to campuses in the fall

Harvard said last month it will be open for the fall semester, but some or all instruction may continue to be online.

Schools from grades K 12 are closed in 48 states for the remainder of the academic school year, which ends in the next few weeks for many.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Tuesday that he supports CSU’s decision to cancel nearly all in person classes for the fall semester.

“I absolutely think it’ll be a different school than we’re used to, whether that’s fewer days a week, whether it’s half the class coming in, whether it’s new spaces or places where we educate,” said Mayor Garcetti.

Garcetti said K 12 schools in Los Angeles should prepare to resume with online classes, but “it would be a pity if we have all of our children only online throughout the rest of this calendar year.”

## ## Mercatino di Ninni relocates to via Federighi

Even a casual perusal of the racks is a study in sophisticated taste. Bottega Veneta, Issy Miyake, Yves Saint Laurent, Lanvin, Herm Chlo Chanel, Fendi, Marni and Narciso Rodriguez are only a few of the luxury labels lining the shop. Here, however, high fashion doesn break the bank. Much of Ninni inventory is modestly priced: often, pieces are from past collections, but have never been worn before. With Ninni far flung fashion contacts in Paris and around the world, items often arrive to the shop straight from runways and showrooms.
