(KEYC) - University of Minnesota leaders mapping out a plan to reopen classrooms, dormitories and other common spaces this fall amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The Board of Regents endorsed the plan Thursday and is expected to vote in July. The reopening plan includes some physical distancing, COVID-19 monitoring, testing and isolation.

Each of the university’s five campuses would adjust their academic calendars to start the semester early and end classroom instruction by Thanksgiving.

University officials say there will be dedicated spaces in residence halls and off-campus hotels for those under quarantine.
