Arizona’s three universities plan to hold in-person classes on campus this fall with precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus.

The school presidents at Northern Arizona, Arizona State, and UArizona say they will follow recommendations from state and local health authorities when their classes resume in August.

The state of Arizona on Thursday reported 16 new deaths from the coronavirus and 446 new cases.

All  three universities switched over to holding classes online in March to practice social-distancing during the outbreak.

The big jump in cases is likely a reflection of increased testing.

A death row inmate became the third prisoner in Arizona prisons to die from the coronavirus.

Seven other death row prisoners have tested positive for COVID-19.
