Pickaway – Recent news of three cases of Coronavirus in Ohio has caused some colleges to suspend face-to-face classes and major public events for several weeks as a precaution.
OCU has said it is not ready to suspend those classes at this time as it feels that they are at a low risk but are prepared to if necessary.
Statement from Jon S. Kulaga, Ph.D.President of Ohio Christian University
“These two major scenarios do not impact the student population attending Ohio Christian University. Our risk of exposure remains low.
However, we are ready, should the time arrive and it becomes necessary, to move the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester to online/virtual learning for our students on the main campus receiving face-to-face instruction.
Again, that decision has not yet been made. As you look around you will still see people shopping, attending athletic events, concerts, church, etc. We do need to remain vigilant and use common sense precautions as posted on the Center for Disease Control website.”
