Kansas City University of Medicine and bioscience is taking a better safe than sorry response to the coronovirus.
Jamie Hirshey, Campus Human Resources Director at KCU Tells NewsTalk KZRG part of the reason. Hirshey says that they are following the advice of the CDC and keeping “face to face” interaction to a minimum. She also stated that many of their students left the area during spring break. Plus, some of the students even traveled internationally exposing them to even more possibilities of infection. So following the CDC mandate is paramount.
Students will be working online for two weeks and then KCU will, again, look for guidance from the CDC to make sure the community stays safe.
The motto of the university is “improving the well-being of the communities we serve” and for the next couple weeks, making sure they aren’t a cause of the pandemic spreading in the four states is the goal of KCU.
