Wayne State University.
Wayne State University is canceling face-to-face instruction on campus and reimposing other restrictions beginning Wednesday as new COVID-19 cases reach alarming levels in Michigan.
The restrictions will stay in place until the case numbers drop to an “acceptable range,” President M. Roy Wilson said in an email to students and faculty.
The university also is suspending all athletics practices and competitions, and guest access to student housing is restricted. In addition, WSU is closing the Mort Harris Recreation and Fitness Center and the Student Center Building, except for COVID-19 testing.
The university will revisit the restrictions in 10 days, Wilson said.
