California has issued health guidelines for colleges and universities to resume in-person classes. The guidance says colleges and athletic programs can reopen if they meet certain COVID-19 prevention plans and social distancing requirements. Health officials are recommending closing “nonessential shared spaces” like lounges and providing grab-and-go meal options instead of a traditional buffet in dining halls. The state also recommends single-room-occupancy in dorms. For sports, coaches and players on the sidelines must wear masks, and practice is only allowed if regular testing is available.
