WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — Wichita State University announced Friday that they would be ending all COVID-19 restrictions on campus. This includes an end to the mask mandate, social distancing, and mass gathering limitations.
“I am looking forward to getting back to normal and being able to live like a normal college student,” said Jacob Mund, WSU student.
In a statement released by WSU, the school explained, “Since the beginning of this pandemic, we have followed all guidance and orders issued by state and local public health authorities. Accordingly, WSU has rescinded all mandates requiring masks, social distancing, and mass gathering limitations on our campus.”
“I don’t feel like the numbers are going down enough for us to actually remove masks,” said Brian Harris, WSU student.
It continued with what WSU staff can expect in the coming months.
“Additionally, we have planned a return to pre-pandemic operations for our faculty and staff beginning June 1. For those who worked in person and on campus prior to the pandemic, this will include a return to on-campus work.”
“I think it’d be good for everyone if we all went back to classes,” said Victor Dimartino, WSU student. “I kind of like online but then again, I hate it.”
“Many other students learn better in an in-person environment,” said Jocab Mund, WSU student.
