OUTDATED POST FAQ Concerning JSU students

Updated: Mar 13


Do JSU students have coronavirus/COVID-19?

No. Two commuter students have been exposed off-campus and are not symptomatic at this time. To our knowledge, we do not have a person on campus exposed to COVID-19.


Should my student come home/should I go home?

At this time, there is no known increased risk on campus, and classes are continuing. However, students who are sick should not attend class, so that they are not spreading a cold, the flu, or other illnesses.


Cleaned campus?

JSU began in early February doing additional cleaning due to flu season. We are now doing targeted deep cleaning in the classrooms/buildings where the two students attended class.


Should I attend class/come back to class?

If you are healthy, you should continue to attend class. If you are not healthy, you should seek medical attention and stay home.


Is it in the residence halls?

The two students who were exposed off campus are commuter students, and they were not in the residence halls.


What buildings?

The two students who were exposed off campus attended class in Ayers Hall, Houston Cole Library, Martin Hall, and Stone Center. These buildings were targeted for deeper cleaning with bleach, and this special treatment will be completed by Saturday morning.


Were students informed?

Faculty and students who were in class with the two students were informed on Friday, March 6—either via their JSU email or in person in class.


Are classes cancelled?

No, JSU will be conducting normal operations. There is no reason to believe campus is not safe and we are continuing cleaning/disinfecting practices.


Are events cancelled?

Should I cancel my spring break plans?
