Q: What resources will I have to help move my classes to an online/virtual format?

A: Faculty may receive instruction from ECU's Center of Teaching and Learning on resources available to assist them as they move classes online. Here is the CETL link: https://ecok.libguides.com/faculty .

Q: What if I feel ill?

A: Please do not come to campus. If you believe your symptoms warrant testing, contact the Pontotoc County Health Department, ECU Student Health Services, or the state of Oklahoma's COVID-19 Hotline (numbers at top of this page).

Q. If I have to get a COVID-19 test, is it covered by insurance?

A: Yes. ECU's benefits package includes the Zero Card, which covers the full cost of a physician-ordered COVID-19 test. Full details may be found at www.thezerocard.com/covid-19.

Q: I traveled over Spring Break, so what do I need to do?

A: If you traveled outside of Oklahoma for Spring Break, it is recommended that you contact the Oklahoma State Department of Health to see if self-quarantine should be warranted. Call the OSDH COVID-19 Hotline at 877-215-8336 or visit the site at www.coronavirus.health.ok.gov.

Q: How long do we get for Spring Break?

A: ECU is extending Spring Break an extra week for students only. 

Q: Is the campus closing?

A: Yes. The ECU campus is closed until further notice. Gov. Stitt ordered all non-essential businesses in counties with confirmed COVID-19 cases to close for 21 days, midnight March 26 through April 16. We will comply with the order and close all non-essential operations. All buildings will be locked during this time. There are a few operations that remain essential to campus. Personnel from those areas will be on campus to perform specific functions. The vice presidents overseeing those areas will communicate the individual plans for those employees. Many employees are working remotely and will continue to do so. This new order prevents employees from working in their offices. Do not return to your offices until the order is lifted. Communicate with your vice president if you believe you need to be on campus. Personnel who cannot telework and are not needed on campus will be on administrative leave through April 16.

Q: Will Taff Cafeteria keep the same hours?

A: No. The ECU campus is closed until further notice.
