LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Wayne State University announced Thursday it will start the new year with remote learning as the threat of the omicron variant of the coronavirus looms over Michigan and other state universities consider what it means for campus safety.
The Detroit university will stay remote until Jan. 31, then analyze the latest case numbers and data before deciding how to move forward. Wayne State joined a few other universities this week in requiring the COVID-19 booster for the entire university population next year. The flu vaccine will also be required.
