MURRAY, Ky. — Murray State University continues to proactively monitor and assess the COVID-19, novel coronavirus. Careful and thoughtful decisions are being made and the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, along with the broader community, will continue to guide us.
As part of a campus update on March 11, spring break for students remains as scheduled from Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 20, 2020.
Beginning on Monday, March 23, class instruction will continue through online or alternative delivery methods, but not face-to-face instruction, through Sunday, April 5. This includes our regional campus sites at Fort Campbell, Henderson, Hopkinsville, Madisonville and Paducah.
During this period of time, the university strongly encourages students to remain at home unless there are unpreventable circumstances (such as international students, student teachers or practicum and clinical students who need to stay on campus). While residence halls and Waterfield Library will be open during this time, no campus activities and events will take place and resources such as the Wellness Center, gyms and activity areas inside John W. Carr Hall, Wrather Museum, Cutchin Field House (Racer Arena) and Lovett Auditorium will be closed. It is important to recognize the need for social distancing at this time in order to mitigate the possible effects of COVID-19.
