Ottawa KS Campus:

There are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at Ottawa University’s Kansas campus.

However, there have been confirmed cases in Franklin County. Therefore, effective following spring break, all campus instruction on the University’s Ottawa campus will move to the distance-education format for the rest of the spring semester. At the end of the spring semester, public health and university officials will collaborate and reevaluate the situation at that time and notify all parties of next steps.

Please know that officials on the Ottawa campus will continue to work diligently and effectively with students, faculty, community agencies and the county health department to ensure students will be able to complete their school work and remain as safe and protected as possible. We ask that all students check their university-issued email for specific instructions concerning their ongoing classes and the shift to distance modality.
