Gallaudet Moves Classes Online

Classes at Gallaudet University are now remote until the semester ends Saturday (May 7) as covid cases rise.

The number of coronavirus cases is on the rise and administrators hope to reduce the spread. The positivity rate rose from less than 0.5 percent to 2.6 percent in just two weeks.

Students are also being encouraged to move out of their dorms.N95 or KN95 masks are now required on campus and cloth or surgical masks will no longer be allowed. Weekly testing is still required.

The university is still planning for an in-person commencement on May 13. It would be the first in three years. Apple's Tim Cook will address the students.
