Current Campus Update

September 14, 2020

Students – good morning.  Last week was a good week, adherence to guidelines was much better as we work to keep our campus safe and healthy – thank you.  Let's do it again this week!

Please remember:

  1. Wear your mask – it is required on campus, in classrooms, when walking outside on MSU property, off campus and at all times when required per our guidelines.
  2. Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear has issued an Executive Order to limit social events and gatherings to ten (10) or fewer individuals.  Note:  Ten or fewer.
    This Order prohibits any type of social gatherings such as backyard events, room/apartment/house and block parties.  This Order does not include approved University-sponsored events which adhere to our Racer Restart Plan.    
  3. If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or are not feeling well, please call MSU Health Services at 270-809-3809, Primary Care Medical Center at 270-759-9200 or contact your personal healthcare provider.
  4. Please watch this short video regarding our Racer Safe and Healthy guidelines:  RacerSafe&HealthyGuidelinesVideo or go to murraystate.edu/racerrestart for more information, videos, Q&A, among other guidelines.
  5. Please see information regarding Counseling Services and other important information at Racer Restart:   https://www.murraystate.edu/racerrestart/.
  6. To report any issues of non-compliance regarding our Racer Restart Plan, Racer Safe and Healthy Guidelines, concerns or violations of non-university events and activities, please email msu.racersafeandhealthy@murraystate.edu.
  7. Finally, let's make good choices this week and beyond.  We want to have a good, safe and healthy semester.  We all want to be on campus for the full semester which ends on November 20.

To do this, it requires your help and compliance by adhering to all guidelines and making good choices. 

Your agreement to adhere to all Racer Safe and Healthy Guidelines is not just for yourself, but also for the health and safety of others.

Dr. Robert L (Bob) Jackson
