KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas State University has released a list of steps students must take before returning to campus for the fall semester in order to mitigate COVID-19 spread.

The university asks that students returning to campus from high-risk areas self-quarantine for 14 days.

A list of requirements has been laid out for anyone returning who may have been exposed to COVID-19, both students and staff.

An online face covering training will also be mandatory for students.

New students must complete basic health record updates, like putting immunizations on file.

The school is also asking that anyone experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 not return to campus.

Unlike the University of Kansas, students and staff will not have to get a COVID-19 test before returning to classes.
