UW-Milwaukee announced that it will shift primarily to remote instruction after Thanksgiving break.

This follows after Gov. Tony Evers issued an executive order urging people to stay home, avoid gatherings and to limit travel.

With limited exceptions, courses will be held virtually for the remaining 11 days of instruction after Thanksgiving recess.

Students in specialized courses will retain some in-person meetings and will be notified by early next week, the university said.

The UWM campus will remain open and so will residence halls and dining operations.

Following the break, following UW System guidance, there will be mandatory COVID-19 testing for those who leave for the Thanksgiving recess and return.

Before returning to campus, students must have two negative COVID-19 tests before returning to any in-person instruction.

As of now, Winterim classes will be primarily online.
