All K-State in-person events and meetings canceled
To protect community health during the COVID-19 epidemic, Kansas State University is canceling in-person events at all campuses for the next three weeks and will reevaluate this policy on a weekly basis thereafter. Those who can move events to virtual settings are encouraged to do so.
Also, all in-person meetings should be moved to virtual environments or canceled. If in-person meetings are unavoidable to maintain mission-critical functions, proper social distancing guidelines should be followed. These guidelines are in effect until further notice.
Social distancing has been shown to slow a disease outbreak during times of concern with pandemics. The university offers several resources and tools for virtual meetings, including Zoom, K-State Canvas, Mediasite, and Office 365. The university is making plans to further reduce operations on the physical campuses, more information will be shared with employees on Sunday, March 15.
