When will I learn which of my Fall 2020 classes meet in-person and which will be taught remotely?
Course delivery modes are being updated in the scheduling system, and we anticipate having all course delivery information updated in myOleMiss by Monday, July 20. Due to capacity limitations dictated by public health guidance, courses will be delivered in four delivery modes – face-to-face, hybrid, remote, or online. Face-to-face and hybrid formats will have on-campus educational components. For more details, please see the definitions for each delivery format.

What should I do if I test positive for COVID-19?
Employees must report positive tests to their supervisor and Employee Health at (662) 915-6550. The anonymity and confidentiality of persons with COVID-19 will be protected during this process. University Health Services will collaborate with the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) for contact tracing and to determine additional precautions that may be warranted.
