Rogers State University today has implemented further actions to increase social distancing. The actions intend to minimize the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic at its campuses in Claremore, Pryor and Bartlesville.
“As we resume operations on Monday, we will seek to move forward with empathy and flexibility,” said RSU President Larry Rice. “I recognize that everyone of us is working through unforeseen challenges. Together, we will support one another as we navigate the days ahead through these unprecedented times.”
New decisions today include moving all course instruction online and the cancelation of all university-sponsored events for the remainder of the semester. In addition, the university will implement new work plans to support university-wide efforts of social distancing. These modifications will keep employees distanced by a minimum of six feet and will limit office spaces to fewer than 10 individuals per work area.
At this time RSU campuses will reopen for students, faculty and staff as scheduled on Monday, March 23. Guests wishing to visit any of the campuses for any reason are required to call the campus prior to the visit and follow all issued guidelines. Guests arriving on any campus without approval will be required to leave immediately.
Rice said administrators will continue to monitor the situation and respond accordingly. He encouraged students and employees to monitor their email for ongoing updates.
