COVID-19 Recovery: Campus Activities

This web page addresses frequently asked questions related to campus activities and COVID-19. For more information, contact the Office of Student Involvement at osi@nwmissouri.edu or 660.562.1226.

Will student organizations be allowed to meet in person?  (updated 7/17/20)

Student organizations may meet after July 15 and are expected to implement and maintain Northwest mitigation measures, which include, at a minimum, maintaining 6 feet of social distance from others and wearing a face covering. Common areas, such as the J.W. Jones Student Union, as well as hallways, common work spaces, meeting rooms and classrooms, will require students to wear a face covering regardless of social distance.

While Northwest advises student organizations to use Zoom or similar platforms for meetings, groups may choose to meet in-person if they can maintain appropriate social distancing and wear face coverings.

Under what circumstances will an event be canceled?  (updated 7/17/20)

Student organization activities must be canceled or postponed if mitigation measures cannot be maintained. At a minimum, individuals attending campus events and activities must maintain 6 feet of social distance and wear a face covering. Common areas, such as the J.W. Jones Student Union, as well as hallways, common work spaces, meeting rooms and classrooms, will require individuals to wear a face covering regardless of social distance.

Events or activities that draw more than 250 participants or more than 10 high-risk participants and cannot be modified due to time or resource limitations must be canceled or postponed.

What will student activities and events on campus look like?  (updated 7/9/20)
