School has been closed since pandemic interrupted classes March 9
JEFFERSON CITY – For the first time since the coronavirus closed campus during spring classes, students are living and studying at Lincoln University. Employees and students are required to wear masks in all campus buildings and social distancing is being enforced across university grounds.
Classrooms have significantly smaller teacher-student ratios due to six-foot distancing guidelines set for by the Centers for Disease Control and state health agencies. Fall sports, homecoming, and other social activities have been canceled. According to the Missouri Dept. of Health and Senior Services, the state appears to be heading towards the good side of the COVID-19 curve.
The state reported zero deaths from COVID in the last 24 hours. In Cole County, where LU is located, 722 cases and three deaths have been reported since the pandemic was discovered six months ago.
