The Wolfville, N.S., university announced it will be welcoming students back to campus in September, offering in-person and online courses. That's our desire, and we know it's our students' hope, too.

The timing for launching the return phases will be contingent upon the ongoing assessment of any federal and state guidelines and requirements that may apply. Most have said they intend to bring students back to campus, but have offered scarce details on how many students are likely to return and how dormitories and classrooms will be organized to curb the spread of the virus.

Practice frequent hand-washing hygiene and respiratory etiquette.
