How will the University continue to address the changing situation related to COVID-19?
The University has convened a COVID-19 preparedness group that is meeting regularly and monitoring this evolving situation daily.
When making decisions regarding public health issues such as COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019), the University will always work cooperatively with and follow the guidelines and recommendations of leading health organizations, including the National Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention, the Ohio Department of Health, the Stark County Health Department, and the Alliance City Health Department.
In this particular situation, the University has also been in close contact with state government officials, peer institutions, and other higher education professional organizations.
As this group continues its work, the University will be certain to communicate decisions and other COVID-19 related protocals and details to the campus community in timely manner.
