2. One of 3 to stop face-to-face teaching

With Manchester among the worst-hit parts of the country, both the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) said they would stop classes and seminars, except for a handful of specialist courses, and move to online teaching until at least the end of October.

“Manchester’s universities are moving online to manage outbreaks that could have been prevented had they listened to us sooner,” said Martyn Moss, a regional officer for the University and College Union (UCU), which called 10 days ago for all university classes to be held online.

The University of Sheffield, which reported nearly 600 confirmed cases among students and staff, also said it would stop face-to-face teaching other than for clinical courses until 19 October.

“We will use this transition period to put in place additional risk-mitigation measures that will allow for the resumption of face-to-face teaching,” Sheffield’s vice-chancellor, Koen Lamberts, said in an email to staff.
