COLUMBUS, Ohio (WJW) – The Ohio State University has released its plans for fall.

The school moved to online learning in March due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Following virtual-only summer classes, the school is preparing for in-person classes in August.

Here are some of the requirements:

  • Face masks are required indoors
  • Faculty and students are asked to report temperature and a daily health assessment each day
  • Ohio State students, faculty and staff will be required to complete a “commitment pledge”

The pledge has yet to be written. The school says it is being finalized by a committee.
