Mississippi Valley State University continues to closely monitor the global health emergency and outbreak of the novel Coronavirus, known as COVID-19.  

With thousands of cases confirmed in Mississippi and nearby states, we understand the increased possible risk of exposure to our campus community. MVSU’s Emergency Response Team is monitoring this fluid situation by following recommendations from the State Department and the CDC. We are also working closely with government agencies to obtain advice and guidance on managing the campus in the event of a confirmed case. 

If any urgent information needs to be communicated, notifications will be posted on this webpage. Students, faculty, and staff will also be notified via MVSU News, ReGroup text messaging, Facebook (@valley.state), and Twitter (@MVSUDevils).
