Changes are in store for Lake Area college students returning to campus this year at the University of Missouri in Columbia.

They include isolation facilities, hybrid classes and a recommended pre-semester quarantine for students returning in August.

MU officials say they’ve set aside lodging for students living in housing on campus “to isolate positive cases and quarantine their close contacts.”

Students, staff and faculty are expected to supply their own face coverings and they will be required in classroom settings, as well as open areas within campus buildings.

August move-in for students living in university housing has been spread out across August 12th through the 23rd and students must sign up for a 90-minute time slot prior to arrival.

Students must also have a face covering, thermometer, hand sanitizer and other cleaning products with them to move into their housing.
