KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Nearly all employees with the University of Missouri system and the four universities across the state will be required to work remotely through April 12.
System President Mun Choi made the announcement Thursday afternoon. The directive goes into effect at midnight on Monday, March 23, and goes through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 12.
The announcement includes “rare” exceptions for employees whose jobs require them to be on the campus.
“As we continue to watch the COVID-19 crisis unfold, new developments — and our subsequent decisions — are occurring on an hour-by-hour basis,” Choi said. “While we have taken many actions to help prevent the spread of the disease, we must do more. I am issuing a presidential directive that no one physically works on our universities unless they are requested to do so by an appropriate supervisor.”
