Morehouse College officials announced Monday about 1,200 students will return to campus in February 2021. The campus has remained closed since March, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The current plan for spring semester means most students will continue learning online for the time being.

In a press release distributed Monday morning, officials said staff will work on “staggered schedules.”
