In light of the quickly evolving circumstances related to COVID-19, Antioch College announces a series of immediate actions. These measures are being taken out of an abundance of caution—rather than a sense of panic—to safeguard our community.
Actions include the suspension of classes beginning Thursday, March 12 for the Winter quarter with the remainder of coursework to be completed online, as well as online instruction for the start of the upcoming Spring quarter. In addition, campus events have been cancelled until further notice. Enhanced cleaning and sanitation measures across campus have been implemented by housekeeping and Wellness Center staff since March 9.
The College respectfully requests that local residents and other guests observe our social distancing measures and ask that they avoid visiting campus. The Birch Kitchen dining facility and Olive Kettering Library are currently restricted to members of the campus community only; no outside guests, please.
A special task force has been formed to track the COVID-19 situation closely and to create recommendations for policy.
The College’s Novel Coronavirus webpage will continue to be updated as the situation evolves, and provides more detailed information (including information for Wellness Center patrons, Glen Helen, and the general public)
