Coronavirus Update and Prevention

MSU continues to closely monitor developments regarding the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), and has activated an Incident Management Team to plan actions should the outbreak begin to affect our area or areas where our students and employees travel.

While the Coronavirus has not spread to our area, we must all be diligent in our preparations. Please refer to the February 10 postmaster (attached).
