Notre Dame finally announced on Monday that it would welcome students back to campus for the 2020-21 fall semester the week of Aug. 10, two weeks earlier than originally scheduled. The school will forgo fall break in October and end the semester before Thanksgiving.
According to the ND web site, the reopening plan will include comprehensive testing for COVID-19, contact tracing, quarantine and isolation protocols, social distancing and mask requirements. The school also has identified facilities to isolate students who test positive and quarantine students.
The significance, of course, is that Notre Dame is a national icon for college football.
