As the coronavirus appears to be rapidly spreading across the United States, it will obviously reach the Mountain State — if it hasn’t already. We can’t predict or pretend to know when or how it will affect us, but the more we lean on each other (figuratively, not literally. Don’t do that.) the better off we will be.

The plan is to provide links and share information as it pertains to West Virginia University and the state of West Virginia, as a whole, on this page. Feel free to use the comments section to share updates, talk, vent, or as a way to stay sane. We’ll be around, too.



  • West Virginia University has shared an updates/FAQ page regarding how it is handling the pandemic.
  • WVU has temporarily suspended in-person classes the week following spring break (March 23-27) and will then offer online class instruction or other alternative learning options beginning March 30 as it continues to monitor the threat of novel coronavirus. Students should remain home following spring break to receive instruction until WVU is confident that you can return to campus safely.
