LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – The fall semester began Monday, Aug. 16, 2021 as students returned to the classroom – masked, but ready to learn. A recent surge of Covid-related infections in Missouri has forced the continuance of social distancing and other restrictions on campus, but students seem resigned to a temporary state of affairs.
“I don’t like masks, but I think this will pass soon,” said Mark, who said he was from Jefferson City. Like many students, he said he was hoping to ditch the masks this fall. LU has mandated that students, faculty, and staff wear masks in all campus buildings and offices until further notice.
