Thanks to mandatory testing and thorough planning, Lynchburg was off to a strong start when spring semester classes began last week. Zero positive COVID-19 cases among students climbed to just five after a full week on campus, with six cases among faculty and staff. A total of 26 students are in quarantine as of Monday.
When students leave campus for winter break on Nov. 24, the University of Lynchburg will have reached a big milestone: completing the Fall 2020 semester on campus in the middle of a pandemic without a major outbreak.
Members of the University of Lynchburg community are involved in statewide initiatives related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
