College employees will work remotely beginning March 23 and may be contacted by phone or email.  Dorms and food service on campus will reopen on March 23 following the March 16-20 spring break week.

"This situation has grown more broad and complex daily, and we have been planning accordingly.  We're in uncharted waters and working to best serve and protect our students, employees, and community members," said MSC President Joy McDaniel.

Spring sports competitions and practices have been cancelled in light of recommendations by NJCAA.  Community groups that have scheduled events on the Murray State College campus should contact the employee with whom they made reservations to confirm.  Any events previously scheduled may be postponed, cancelled or rescheduled to protect the health of all.
