Michigan university to return to "normal"


The University of Michigan says most classes will be held in person in the fall, and residence halls will be 80-percent full.

Dr. Preeti  Malani is an advisor to U of M President Mark Schlissel.

She says there will still be some restrictions, like mask-wearing in the classroom.

If you think of last year as a switch, you turned off the lights, shut the door, said go home -- this is a dial, and it'll dial up and it'll dial back, and you know I am actually very optimistic that the fall is going to look a lot like it used to look.

Fans will also be able to attend athletic events if public health guidelines allow.
