No. Classes will be offered face-to-face only. Streaming and Zoom options will NOT be offered.
We are returning to our traditional Attendance Policy. Students who must miss class for any reason will be required to address the absence with their instructor. The Attendance Policy is available here.
Clinicals, internships, practicums, and fields will be held as scheduled with appropriate adaptations to current conditions. Students in these programs may be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and/or submit testing at the discretion of the host organization. Program hosts will be responsible for providing testing. If conditions change and warrant cancellation, advisors will notify you. Direct any questions to your advisor.
There is a wide range of protocols that can be implemented to reduce the spread of the virus on campus. The COVID-19 Response Task Force, in consultation with local health care experts, is monitoring the situation on campus, as well as the surround community, to make timely changes based on current information.

Healthy Campus

No; however, MVNU is strongly recommending vaccination. Those who are fully vaccinated (and report as required) are exempt from random weekly saliva screening and quarantine if exposed to the virus.
Contact your primary care physician or your local health department for information on vaccinations. You can also visit to search for vaccine availability in your community. If you need assistance with vaccination, please contact
All visitors and members of the university community may now choose whether to wear masks on campus.

  • Faculty reserve the right to require masks in their classes

* Please note that some individuals may continue to wear masks full time for a range of possible reasons. We ask that you respect their decisions.

MVNU no longer requires weekly screening for any community members. However, students who participate in field placements, internships, practicums, or clinicals, may have specific screening requirements. Program hosts will be responsible for screening.

All individuals (regardless of vaccination status) who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 should be tested. You can reach Student Health Services at or text 740-507-0275.
If you have a fever over 100.1 degrees or higher, contact the school nurse or a healthcare provider to determine the next course of action.
Those needing to isolate who live less than six (6) hours from campus will be required to return home to quarantine or isolate. Those who live six (6) hours or more from campus should contact Elijah Arns Ext 4648  for dedicated on-campus isolation.
