GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - When the University of Florida shifted online almost overnight in March because of COVID-19, biology major Aneesah Melaram knew her lab and campus experience would be much different.
“It was awful… . I do way better with in-person lectures,” said the 19-year-old rising sophomore from Port St. Lucie about online classes.
But while she said she’s excited to possibly return to Gainesville and a sense of normalcy in the classroom next month, she can’t shake the feeling that not all 50,000 students will follow social-distancing rules or even wear masks.

“I don’t trust everybody to follow all the social-distancing rules and wear their mask everywhere,” she said. “Under the posts UF makes on Instagram, people are saying Gators don’t wear masks … and I’m like, ‘This is for everybody’s own good.’”
