Pitt to begin spring term remotely, implement shelter-in-place starting Jan. 8 due to COVID-19 concerns – WTAE Pittsburgh

The University of Pittsburgh announced Thursday that it will begin the spring term remotely for the first two and a half weeks amid the spread of the COVID-19 omicron variant. The university said classes will begin remotely on Jan. 10. The university said that an exception to the rule may be made by the approval of the dean for programs and classes that need to meet in person. Classes will take place fully in-person beginning on Jan. 27. Pitt also announced it will be implementing a university-wide shelter-in-place beginning Saturday, Jan. 8. Pitt said the shelter-in-place period will be in place at least five days after the last cohort of students arrives. "Based on the above timelines, the Pittsburgh campus will shelter in place through at least Wednesday, Jan 26. The regional campuses will shelter-in-place through at least Jan. 13," the university said in a letter. During the shelter-in-place period, the university said students should only leave their rooms or apartments to attend classes, labs or clinicals in person (if in-person classes were approved by the dean of your school); pick up food; exercise safely; study in the library; work when necessary and shop for essentials and medical needs. "As we continue to monitor the spread of the new variant and its severity in our community, we will remain vigilant and adjust plans when necessary for the safety and health of our campuses," the university said in a message to faculty and students.
