Shawnee Takes Caution

Keldon Bowling, Editor

As many students may have heard, Shawnee will be converting all classes online as of March 23 until April 12 this semester. According to an email sent to all Shawnee students and faculty from the Office of the President, this shift is an attempt to “keep with advice and recommendations regarding COVID-19 from Governor DeWine and health officials.” As a result, classes will be cancelled next week, March 16-20 to allow professors enough time to transition their classes and materials onto an online format.

Despite this, some class-times including labs, clinicals, teaching, and other special activities will continue with their regular in-person schedules. The university will also remain open to provide critical services for students, according to the Office of the President. While it is not confirmed all possible cases of COVID-19 in Scioto County are negative, precaution should still be taken. Make sure to keep your hands washed after any interaction and to avoid touching your face after any interaction.
