FROM: MSU President Mark E. Keenum
RE: Operating guidelines and procedures for the 2020 Spring Semester
I am extending the emergency guidelines under which Mississippi State University will operate for the rest of the 2020 Spring Semester. MSU will update this information as often as needed.
In compliance with guidance from the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, Mississippi State University will deliver online or other remote instructional course content for the remainder of the 2020 spring semester. That decision is based on national and state public health protocols established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH).
No changes are being made to the current leave status of employees - all employees who are currently on administrative leave will remain on administrative leave until further notice.
MSU requests that all non-essential employees stay at home until you are contacted by your supervisor to report to work. All employees who can work remotely should do so.
