COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, has been classified by the World Health Organization as a global pandemic. Worldwide, cases now number in the millions, and there confirmed cases in every state in the U.S., as well as in most counties in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma State Department of Health and the Comanche County Health Department are monitoring the situation for potential local impact.
What Cameron University is Doing
Cameron University continues to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak for its potential impact on our students and staff. The Comanche County Health Department and the Oklahoma State Health Department continue to be helpful with planning assistance and timely information. CU took action to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic at its campuses in Lawton and Duncan by implementing remote instruction for the spring semester. Enrollment for the summer semester is open, with classes being offered in the safest appropriate format. Enrollment is also open for the fall semester, with the intention of offering face-to-face instruction if circumstances permit. In any event, if the university’s operational status changes significantly, students and employees will be notified through the campus Emergency Communication System. Less significant changes will be distributed through campus email.
We encourage our students and employees to implement social distancing and good health practices to minimize the chance of illness. In addition, we strongly encourage both Cameron students and employees to check with their health care providers, state health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control for current information on the COVID-19 pandemic. Check this web page, as well as your campus email account, regularly in order to learn about possible changes to the course schedule.
