Colleges and universities in Mid-Missouri are welcoming students back to campus, with in-person classes set to resume in August.
Each has its own plan to keep students, workers and visitors safe. Links to each plan are available below.
University of Missouri
The University of Missouri's Show Me Renewal plan requires students and employees to observe social distancing and wear masks. The plan also requires faculty and staff to report their temperature before going to work.
Classes will take place in-person and online with the options to move all classes online if circumstances warrant.
Columbia College will require masks of everyone on campus indoors and outdoors when social distancing is not possible.
Social distancing is also required and everyone on campus -- students and employees -- must be trained in the new protocols. Classes will be offered in-person and online.
Stephens will offer all of its classes both in-person and online.
Stephens is starting classes early and wrapping them up at the Thanksgiving break. Students will take final exams and give final presentations after the break.
Westminster College is screening students before they return to campus. Westminster students moved back in early August and will wrap up classes on Nov. 21.
William Woods University
William Woods logged several cases of COVID-19 in the spring before in-person classes ended.
The university suggested its students quarantine before coming to campus this summer.
All students will be required to wear masks on campus where social distancing is not possible. Students will sit in the same seats for the whole semester in socially distanced classrooms.
The Blue Tiger Comeback Plan also asks students to limit contact with others before returning to campus ahead of the Aug. 24 resumption of classes.
Masks and monitoring for symptoms are required.
Moberly Area Community College
The commuter campus at MACC has moved most of its classes to a virtual format which meet at the same time as the in-person class would.
Some classes will remain in-person because of the nature of the classwork.
Central Methodist University
The Howard County Health Department has reported positive COVID-19 tests in Central Methodist students.
CMU is conducted antigen testing of all students and employees to see who has been exposed to COVID-19. Ionization air cleaners are being installed and masks are required.
State Technical College
State Technical College in Linn has laid out five tiers that will determine how classes are conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The school's website says State Tech is in "Scenario 2." The website also says masks will be required on campus. Classes will operate normally but social distancing might apply.
State Tech also reports positive cases on campus on its website. On Aug. 10, State Tech reported that two students recently on campus tested positive.
