Can Colleges Survive Coronavirus? 'The Math Is Not Pretty'

Colleges around the U.S. moved classes online during the pandemic. Some are considering keeping their campuses shut in the fall — which means hiring freezes, smaller admissions and even layoffs.

Newton County Health Department

2 new cases in Newton County

The Newton Co Health Dept reports 2 more cases of COVID-19 for our county-this brings our total to 9. The latest cases are separate cases and not related to one another. One resides in the eastern part of the county and the other one is in the Neosho area. Both have are in self-isolation and close contacts have been notified. Neither one of the cases appear to be travel related or a contact to a positive case. Therefore, it does appear the last 3 reported cases are community spread.

It is very important that everyone do their part in practicing social distancing and maintaining 6 feet distance if you have to be in public. Please keep washing your hands frequently, cover your coughs and your sneezes and clean surfaces frequently. Wearing a mask when in public, especially in the stores can help. Please stay home when you are sick unless you need to seek medical attention and remember to call ahead and inform any first responder/medical provider that you are sick. Stay safe and healthy!!!!

For Immediate Release

RE: Crowder College address Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As the national coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) continues to progress, the health and safety of our Crowder College faculty, staff, and students remain our highest priority. While no members of the college community have been diagnosed with COVID-19, it is of paramount importance to us to be proactive rather than reactive in regards to our action. With this in mind, based on the recommendation from the Executive Council and approval from the Board of Trustees, we are suspending in-person classes effective immediately and will move to an all-online or other alternative method of course delivery starting Monday, March 16th and continuing through April 5, 2020.
This is not a closure; college operations will continue. Residence halls and dining services will remain open for use. To address accommodations for students that have limited access to technology, campus computer labs will remain open for use. Crowder College Athletics will follow the guidelines of the NJCAA. Large-scale events scheduled for the campus may be postponed or cancelled.
Dr. Glenn Coltharp, Crowder College President stated, “this move will create many challenges for us all. The coming weeks will require a great deal of flexibility and understanding as we all work through this together. Please continue to practice preventive measures to protect yourself and others from the virus.”
Coltharp went on to say, “At this time the goal of the college is to return to in-person classes on Monday, April 6, 2020. We will continue to reassess the situation and determine before April 6 whether we will return to in-person classes. We will communicate that decision as the date draws closer. At any time, please refer to the Crowder College Webpage www.crowder.edu/COVID-19 for information and updates associated with COVID-19.”
