Webster University

Task Force Message on St. Louis Classes After Thanksgiving

November 13, 2020

Because of new developments from the pandemic in the communities that surround the main campus, Webster University will move the majority of on-ground classes in the St. Louis area to remote instruction beginning Monday, Nov. 30, the first day following the Thanksgiving break. Classes that require in-person instruction or require use of specific facilities will continue meeting on campus as originally scheduled. This initiative is intended to minimize the risk of transmission from the community to the campus, while preserving access to essential campus services and activities. We remind our community of the importance of following COVID-19 safety protocols.
