Livingstone begins classes with students back, new safety measures

In News by Garette Hunter

SALISBURY – Later than usual, but well prepared, Livingstone College began classes on Thursday. Chief Operating Officer Anthony Davis said if the college did not feel confident in its safety measures, it would not have invited students back to campus. The college has taken on a litany of prevention measures as part of its re-entry plan. Everyone on campus, faculty, students and staff, were tested for COVID-19. The campus was also sanitized with electrostatic sprayers ahead of students arriving. An antimicrobial finish was applied to surfaces, and there are hand sanitizing stations throughout the campus, along with enhanced cleaning protocols and a mask requirement. Davis is happy the college is able to have in-person classes at all and said the college saw some transfers from students who felt safer with the level of prevention measures at Livingstone. Davis said it is especially important for the college to take on the additional protocols, which by and large exceed those of other nearby colleges and universities, because Livingstone is a historically Black college, and the African American community has been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. Davis described the campus as a masked community. Students who live on campus and arrived over the past week were tested before they moved into their rooms. The college wants to identify anyone who could be an asymptomatic spreader so it can stop people from unknowingly infecting others. Putting it simply, Davis said the college wants to keep its students safe. Senior SGA President and criminal justice major …
