NEW YORK (WABC) -- As colleges and universities gear up to resume classes, many schools are taking different routes whether it's an all-virtual, hybrid, or full reopen approach.
On August 7, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced New York schools can reopen their doors and bring students into the classrooms for the start of the school year.
Citing success in battling the coronavirus in the state that once was the U.S. heart of the pandemic, the governor's decision clears the way for schools to offer at least some days of in-person classes, alongside remote learning.
On August 12, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed an executive order clearing both public and nonpublic colleges and universities to reopen for the upcoming academic year, as long as social distancing and other protections are strictly adhered to.
Murphy said that any student who chooses to continue remote learning must be accommodated.
