Kansas State University officials say in-person classes and daily operations will continue even as state agencies are asked to go remote.

Officials made the announcement Friday that university operations will not change after Gov. Laura Kelly issued guidance Wednesday directing state agencies to resume remote activities where possible. Administrators said the order applies to organizations under the control of the governor and does not apply to K-State or university employees.

The governor’s guidance stems from increasing COVID-19 cases throughout Kansas.

Face masks are required for all K-State campuses because all host counties are in high or substantial transmission status, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Lafene Health Center continues to offer vaccinations and virus testing for students by appointment.
