TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (TWXL) — Yearly goals for Florida universities are on hold due to the pandemic.

So what does this mean for re-opening in the fall?

On Thursday, the State University System of Florida approved guidelines for universities to create and submit their own plans for campuses to re-open.

Each school is required to have a COVID-19 strategy to include alternative ways to deliver classes and campuses must also continue to follow CDC guidelines.

"We're covering all of the appropriate bases to enhance the safety and health of our student population, and faculty and staff," said Dr. Larry Robinson, the president of Florida A&M University. "We want people to understand that we have to consider all of those as we move forward."

Dr. Robinson says a plan will be submitted to the Board of Governor's by June 12.
