Based on state and federal guidance, BGSU continues to make critical decisions to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus to safeguard our students, faculty, staff and the broader community. Virtual and online learning will continue as planned through the end of the semester, and BGSU staff members who do not need to be physically on campus will work remotely.
