Missouri State Could House Health Care Workers

Missouri State University could be housing area health care workers in their dorms.

The University is looking at a plan to work with area hospitals to give health care workers a place to stay during the COVID-19 outbreak that would allow those workers to avoid putting their family at risk.

“We are working with Cox, Mercy and the state.  We hope to have a statement next week,” Suzanne Shaw told OI Wednesday.

Students at Missouri State who have no safe place to do during the stay at home order are being moved into two residence halls on campus. The freed up space could be used to house area health care workers.

The school expects less than 300 students to remain on campus.
