KNOXVILLE, TN — The University of Tennessee System's COVID-19 task force has released a report that gives guidance, recommendations, and best practices to re-open its campuses in the fall.

“The faculty and staff at each of our campuses have done an incredible job of thinking through the details of re-opening their campuses this fall,” said UT System President Randy Boyd.

In April, the UT System created a statewide task force to advise on policies and procedures that would prioritize the safety and well-being of UT's students, faculty, and staff.

Additionally, each campus has created a local task force to look at specific needs for their campus community. The UT Director of Communications says campus-specific plans will be released in the coming days and weeks.
