Spring Break and COVID-19

Spring Break and COVID-19

Dear Students:

Spring Break is often a time of travel and relaxation. While we want you to enjoy your time on Spring Break, it is important that you stay informed about the most recent guidance surrounding COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus.

As you prepare to depart campus, please take time to review our Langston University page about COVID-19, which outlines how to be informed about the virus and the best way to protect yourselves and our community, including preventative measures and good personal hygiene such as the following:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds;
  • Practice social-distancing and avoid coming into contact with those who display flu-like symptoms;
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands;
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash;
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces;
  • Seek medical attention if you experience flu-like symptoms

All students are welcome to return to campus on Sunday, March 22, 2020 following Spring Break, and we encourage you to do so. Langston University continues to be a safe place to live and learn.

The circumstances surrounding COVID-19 are quickly changing. In the coming weeks, it will be important for you to stay updated on the latest information concerning the pandemic itself and how it might impact Langston University operations. The University will disseminate information through our official communication channels including e-mails from the Office of the President, e-mails from the Office of Public Relations, Langston University RAVE alerts, and through the Langston University website. We look forward to seeing you back on campus soon.

Have a safe and healthy Spring Break!
