Northwest urges compliance with COVID-19 mitigation measures

Northwest Missouri State University employees have returned to working on the campus and buildings have reopened to the public as the University prepares to begin its fall semester Aug. 19 with classes on the campus.

As students and employees return to the campus, Northwest is urging them to continue practicing prevention measures, including frequent hand washing, social distancing of at least 6 feet and wearing face coverings. The University’s plans are aligned and consistent with guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Northwest returned to full operations – with COVID-19 mitigation measures in place – on July 15. The step was the latest in the University’s phased recovery process, which began May 18 when Northwest moved from shelter-in-place to restricted operations by allowing a limited number of employees to resume work on the campus. Campus facilities reopened to the public June 22.
