COVID-19 Update from Dr. DeMelo
The Spring 2020 semester was an unprecedented time. Thank you for your flexibility. The need for compassionate, highly trained healthcare professionals was brought into clear focus by COVID-19. I am proud of you and all the work the faculty and staff have done to prepare you in this unprecedented time.
Cox College continues to monitor COVID-19 federal, state, and local government guidelines for public health safety. With favorable data and approval from state health officials, Governor Parson announced the first phase of the Show Me Strong recovery plan which began on May 4th and extends through Sunday May 31st. While these initial steps are welcome news, Cox College will react slowly and in consultation with CoxHealth on reopening campus. Therefore, Cox College will take the following steps:
- Summer 2020 semester course will begin as online courses. Some courses may move to a hybrid format in late summer, if favorable data indicates it is safe to do so.
- We are planning to start Fall 2020 courses as normal, however this is subject to change.
- Campus will remain closed through at least Sunday May 31st. This date is subject to change. The reopening of campus will depend on favorable public health data. Faculty and staff will be working remotely during this time. Please email staff if you have questions regarding finacial aid, registration, billing, etc.
