The University of Missouri System Board of Curators will review COVID-19 protocols at a meeting this week.

According to an agenda released Monday morning, board members are scheduled to meet over the phone and virtually at 8 a.m. Tuesday. The agenda shows an item listed as COVID-19 protocols.

More information about the meeting wasn't immediately available Monday morning.

The University of Missouri reported a record-high for the 2021-2022 school year of 169 active student cases on Thursday morning. According to data from the school, 724 students have tested positive for COVID-19 since Aug. 22, 2021.

A spokesman for MU told ABC 17 News on Wednesday that the school plans to hold in-person classes when the spring semester starts on Jan. 18.

Columbia College and Stephens College both announced earlier this month plans to move classes temporarily online. Lincoln University in Jefferson City plans in-person classes.

  1. “724 students have tested positive for COVID-19 since Aug. 22, 2021.”
    Per the CDC 12/29/2021: “people can remain PCR positive for up to 12 weeks after infection and long after they are transmissible and infectious.”
    Which means the test numbers mean nothing. Half or more being false positives.
