COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — The president of the University of Maryland says the school will begin its spring semester with virtual learning and continue the semester with a similar “look and feel” to its fall classes.

University President Darryll J. Pines wrote in a Tuesday letter that students will have two weeks of virtual classes before the school shifts to hybrid learning.

Only about 25% of the classes will be in-person when hybrid learning resumes.

All students are required to submit a negative COVID-19 test before coming back to campus.

Everyone who will be on campus will have to get tested for the virus every two weeks.
