As universities plan for the coming semester, higher education administrators are thinking about what to do about Delta, taking various models into consideration while attempting to keep campuses open for in-person instruction. One small college describes their planning/modeling process:

Other universities feel that vaccination rates are high enough to avoid such measures.
