On Thursday UNC-Chapel Hill announced they’ll delay the start of in-person classes by three weeks. Classes will begin on Jan. 19 as planned, but in-person instruction won’t resume until at least Feb. 8, university officials announced.
The decision coming as North Carolina faces record-high covid cases, deaths, and hospitalizations.
State Health Secretary Mandy Cohen Emphasizing the concern Friday.
