Morgan State said University officials are currently evaluating potential partnership opportunities to conduct on-campus testing once the semester starts, in addition to the incorporation of technology to assist in monitoring and potential tracing.


“Instituting a protocol for testing that requires a negative result for all returning Morgan students and employees will be our first line of offense in effectively establishing a wellness benchmark and decreasing the probability of individuals unwittingly placing others at risk,” the University said.

Morgan State is also establishing a COVID-19 Response Team to manage outcomes in the event positive cases emerge on campus.

The University said more details will be released as they become available.
