Northwest restricting operations during coronavirus outbreak

(Updated March 27, 2020)


Out of an abundance of caution to help minimize the spread of COVID-19, Northwest Missouri State University has transitioned to restricted operations, and all campus facilities are closed to the public, effective at 5 p.m. March 20..

Northwest classes that met in-person this spring are resumed online Monday, March 23. Northwest's Horace Mann Laboratory School and the Phyllis and Richard Leet Center for Children and Families are closed through the month of April, in alignment with local school districts.

At this time, there are no confirmed coronavirus cases with impacts to the Northwest campus.
