A message sent to the Grace College and Seminary family today reveals that the COVID-19 test results for the second student returned negative. At the same time, employees were encourage to work from home, if possible. Below is the complete text of the message, sent by President Dr. Bill Katip.
Three days ago, we were informed that the COVID-19 tests for one of our students were negative. We are praising the Lord after being notified this morning that the COVID-19 test results for the second student were also negative. As of this writing, we are not aware of any confirmed cases of COVID-19 on campus and no tests pending for any students, faculty, or staff. Please continue praying for our college, community, state, nation, and world.
Employees Advised to Work From Home
For the purpose of social distancing and to do our part in “flattening the curve” and mitigating the spread of COVID-19, we are advising campus employees that starting Wednesday, March 18th, if they can work from home, they should. This decision is an additional cautionary step in line with guidance from our state and federal governments. We are currently unaware of any COVID-19 cases amongst our faculty and staff.
Thank you to our amazing faculty and staff who have displayed courage, patience, flexibility, and innovation as we together face these unprecedented circumstances. Please continue praying for our college, community, state, nation, and world.
In His Service,
Bill Katip, President
