Northwestern State University is moving into Phase 2 of a return-to-campus plan amid on-going efforts to resume operations in a safe and controlled manner. The university will follow all CDC, state and regional guidelines as details are finalized in the coming weeks with plans for in-person classes and traditional campus activities this fall. Phase 2 focuses on increasing reopening from 25 percent to 50 percent of normal operations.
“There will be some changes from our conventional operations,” said NSU President Dr. Chris Maggio. “Protective masks, hand-sanitizers, deep cleaning of facilities, social distancing and other precautionary protocols will be in place, but interaction and connectivity will again enhance learning and university life.”
