University leaders have announced the difficult but necessary decision to temporarily shift a majority of in-person undergraduate and graduate courses to remote learning for the last three weeks of instruction and final exams following Thanksgiving break. There will be some exceptions, but most students and faculty should plan for remote learning after the holiday.
The university is checking #CampusClear apps with health monitoring stations at Ellis Library, MizzouRec and the Student Center. For more information on the app and screening locations visit the #CampusClear information page.
Students must report a positive COVID-19 test to the MU Student Health Center within four hours of receiving their result. In addition, they will need to let instructors know they won’t be in class. Personal or personally identifying information is confidential under privacy laws, and it will only be used to determine steps such as deep cleaning and academic accommodations.
The university has resources for students dealing with COVID-19 to help them navigate the process and protect themselves, as well as the Mizzou community.
Our roles in helping slow COVID-19 transmission
All Mizzou students are expected to take proactive steps including social distancing, hand hygiene, use of face coverings, monitoring their personal health and staying home if they are feeling unwell to protect the safety of our entire community.
Below are the baseline behaviors we will need from our entire university community to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19:
Mental health resources
Mental health is an important aspect of overall well-being. It may be difficult to avoid mental health challenges right now, but there are things we can do to improve our ability to cope with difficult situations and mental health concerns.
Visit our resources section to find ways to maintain good mental health and to improve your emotional well-being.
Guidance for graduate and undergraduate research students
As the campus reopens for classes for the 2020 fall semester, graduate and undergraduate students and their faculty mentors need to be aware of additional protocols and requirements for students working in research facilities and creative spaces.
Guidance for fall 2020 incoming international students
We have provided a resource page for international students regarding travel, enrollment, housing and other concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic, and our Counseling Center also provides resources for those looking for help coping with the additional stress of the pandemic, discrimination and other impacts of current events.
