REDDING, Calif. – Simpson University in Redding is conducting in-person classes this fall but not without precautions.

The university is requiring all students to get tested for COVID-19 at least 30 days prior to returning to campus. Once on campus, students have 10 days to get tested again.

The university also plans to set up RV and trailer campers as quarantine facilities.

“As we look to respond to COVID, we have found a few different ways to quarantine students when it becomes necessary,” said Dean of Students, Mark Endraske. “We have a really creative solution where we're going to have campers and trailers on campus that will allow some isolation options.

New students will not be allowed to move in until Sept. 4. While returning students will move in the next day.

Classes for Simpson University start on Sept. 7. Read More on how the university plans to conduct face-to-face instruction this fall.
