University of Arizona cancels spring break, adds reading days to mitigate COVID-19

By BrieAnna J. Frank | Arizona Republic

University of Arizona officials announced the cancellation of spring break and that it will be replaced with reading days spread throughout the semester as part of its COVID-19 mitigation efforts.

The school’s faculty senate on Oct. 5 approved the one-time adjustment to the spring schedule, and Provost Liesl Folks announced the changes in a letter sent to students and staff on Wednesday morning.

Folks said the measure was a “necessary component” of the university’s response to the pandemic, which following a spike in cases in early September also included a two-week shelter-in-place policy.
