The University of Missouri has announced plans for in person return to campus by students and others this fall. The university says the plans have been created with input from public health officials, medical experts, and guidance by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
MU says that a use of technology and online strategies will attempt to create social distancing. The university will also be prepared for changes to remote instruction if public health conditions change.
The current plans will require face coverings in classrooms and will be recommended in buildings when social distancing is not possible.
The University of Missouri will work with public health officials if a student or employee tests positive for COVID-19 and will conduct contact tracing to isolate members of the University who may have been impacted.
There will be training for the fall semester protocols that will be required of all students before they arrive on campus.
There will be detailed reports for testing, contact tracing, academics, research, and student life that could be found at the MU website Show Me Renewal Website.
