The University of Missouri announced new policies to try to help contain COVID-19. Students, faculty, and staff are prohibited from holding or participating in events with more than 20 people in a location, on or off campus. That excludes classroom settings. Events by outside groups are not allowed, with rare exceptions. The campus will still serve as a polling location in November. All students, faculty and staff are required to notify the university if they receive a positive COVID-19 diagnosis. Students must notify the MU Student Health Center within four hours, and also notify their instructors that they will not be attending class. Faculty, staff and student employees who test positive are expected to notify their supervisor along with their dean or division leader. A new mandatory app will require people to report symptoms and their temperatures daily.
