Mississippi State gives notification for all employees to shelter in place

TO: All Mississippi State University Employees

FROM: MSU President Mark E. Keenum

RE: Mississippi State gives notification for all employees to shelter in place

In light of Governor Tate Reeves Executive Order No. 1466 which requires all Mississippi residents to shelter in place, all buildings on campus will be closed effective April 3, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. until April 20, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. with the exception of the Longest Student Health Center for emergency medical services and pharmacy services, Perry Cafeteria, Residence Halls housing students who remain on campus, the Wise Center for emergency veterinary services, and the United States Post Office located at Mississippi State University. 

The campus will remain operational, and all employees should continue to work from home to the extent possible.  Classes will continue to be taught remotely.

No employees should report to campus or an MSU facility unless notified by your supervisor to do so or unless approved by your Vice President.  The University Police Department will be notified of the employees that should be in an MSU facility and a Campus Access Pass will be distributed to you by your Vice President.  This should be displayed on your dashboard at all times.  Please have your University Identification Card with you at all times. 

Employees who must work on campus should practice social distancing, and no groups of 10 or more should gather at any time. 

All other employees will remain on administrative leave until further notice.
