Murray State College taking precautions with regard to novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

March 12, 2020


Administrators at Murray State College are closely monitoring the evolving novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation with regard to the health, safety and well-being of those on campus and in service-area communities at large.

The campus facilities’ team has been engaging in preventative disinfection by spraying high-touch areas including door handles and handrails twice per day.  New supplies of hand sanitizer have been distributed throughout campus. Contingency planning is also underway to select alternative delivery methods of coursework and contingencies for campus operations should the need arise.

“At this time MSC is under normal operations and classes will resume after spring break. As new information from health officials develops we may modify our response. That being said, faculty and others with essential roles on campus have been asked to be prepared for any and all changes in daily operations that may arise.  The health and safety of our students and employees is the top priority at Murray State College,” said MSC President Joy McDaniel.

At this time, the college has placed no restriction on travel but is discouraging international travel.   If travel is required, precautionary measures such as self-quarantine may be necessary upon return.  This evolving situation has the full attention of MSC leadership and any changes in the current status will be reported as soon as known.

Spring break for Murray State College will be the week of March 16-20.  Unless there is a change in plans, classes will resume on Monday, March 23, 2020.
