The university has gradually welcomed back researchers to campus following the proper safety protocols, required training and documentation, according to a campus message.

Plans are in the works for the return of more employees, as well as opening other campus operations and resuming athletic practices.

Wright State will follow the state of Ohio’s protocols involving masks, social distancing, health assessments and sanitation.
