MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee says it will also shift to primarily remote learning following Thanksgiving break.

According to a press release, the school decided to make the switch due to the state record of new cases over the past week.

UWM said with some exceptions, most courses will be online for the remaining 11 days before Thanksgiving break. UWM campuses will remain open along with residence halls and dining operations before, during and after the break.

Students who leave for the Thanksgiving recess and return will need to take a COVID-19 test.

As of now, UWM plans to return to a mix of in-person, hybrid and online course options for the spring semester.
