Nicholls State University is preparing for the possibility of moving instruction online due to the corona virus. University President Dr. Jay Clune said in a statement on Wednesday, “We continue to prepare for the possibility of moving instruction online and the need for employees to telework”. “We urge all students to make the choice that is best for their own personal situations. “Preparing for the possible necessity of moving education online does not signal a total campus closure. Even if in-person classes are restricted, there are parts of campus that will need to stay open. This could include housing for international students and others who need accommodations, research labs, essential support services and more.”
Clunes statement followed an announcement made Wednesday by Lafourche Parish of a presumptive case of COVID-19.
