Update from the MSSU COVID-19 Task Force

The spring semester was a challenging time and we are proud of how everyone worked hard to make the best of a difficult situation. There are continued questions about what is happening this fall and our plans going forward with the opening of campus. We are working to answer them as soon as we can.

A COVID-19 task force is meeting weekly to prepare these plans. A new COVID-19 exposure FAQ page has been added to the MSSU COVID-19 website to address some of the concerns.

The health, safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff is our top priority in this ever-changing landscape. Any guidance will be subject to modification in accordance with federal, state and local health guidelines.

We are taking steps to protect your health and safety and ask that you join us in keeping campus safe

  • More than 200 hand sanitizer stations have been installed on campus near building entrances.
  • Our custodial team is continuing to clean and disinfect areas as much as possible. Please be diligent in disinfecting your personal space or shared areas after meetings, etc.
  • Perform a daily personal wellness check before coming to campus and do not come to campus if you feel ill.
  • Please continue to refer to COVID-19 Exposure FAQ and the CDC COVID-19 site on how to protect yourself and what do to if you are sick.

The COVID-19 pandemic is a complex, challenging and fluid situation which continues to evolve. We will continue to update you as more information becomes available. Stay up-to-date by checking the university’s COVID-19 website at https://emergency.mssu.edu/.

Stay well, Lions!
