Martin Luther College is sending students home and will switch to distance learning in response to COVID-19 cases on campus. President Rich Gurgel announced at a Tuesday chapel service that face to face classroom instruction will change to distance learning this week. Students who wish to stay on campus to quarantine for 14 days before returning home are granted this permission. All students remaining on campus will continue to practice all the necessary safety precautions based on their current health status. All sports are suspended. If students return home immediately, MDH and BCPH urge them to quarantine for 14 days to minimize any exposure to anyone in their household.
