DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa's three major public universities are planning to resume in-person classes in the fall but are still working out the details of what that would look like during the coronavirus pandemic.

Iowa Board of Regents President Mike Richards said the schools will follow state and federal health guidelines as they develop plans to bring thousands of students back to the campuses of the University of Iowa, Iowa State University and Northern Iowa University.

University of Iowa officials announced the campus' first positive COVID-19 case in mid-March; a student in the college of dentistry. UNI officials announced their campus' first case, a staff member, on April 17.
