While threats of COVID-19 still remain, the situation is slowly normalizing.
Some colleges announced that they will ask their students to return 2 weeks earlier for the fall semester. This applies to certain colleges for now.

The University of Notre Dame will welcome students back to campus for the 2020-21 fall semester the week of Aug.10, two weeks earlier than originally scheduled, and will forgo fall break in October and end the semester before Thanksgiving, the University’s president, Rev.
