MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The president of the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents is promising that students will be able to return to campuses for the spring semester.

Regents President Andrew Petersen said Monday that regents expect students will be able to return at the end of January, hoping that more robust COVID-19 testing will help stave off the types of outbreaks that forced the system to turn to online-only instruction a few weeks into the fall semester.

The system plans to test students living in dorms at least once a week and students living off-campus at least once every two weeks.

He says regents want to see more in-person instruction this semester.
