LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. announced on Friday morning that university officials are working to eliminate large gatherings, including convocations, but that students will return to campus after spring break.

While this is a fluid situation, Falwell says “this too shall pass,” and does not predict any major changes moving forward.

Unless everything changes in the next week, Falwell says that Liberty University will not follow the path of other schools who are switching to online classes. Furthermore, Falwell says that commencement will continue outdoors as planned to reward the students’ hard work. However, the school will implement modified safety measures to accommodate those with respiratory problems and older individuals.
