Lynchburg, Va- The University of Lynchburg resumed classes on Monday after two weeks of virtual learning.
Students were happy to be back in class after facing the fear of being sent home; something many schools across the country have done.
“It’s hard to do nursing online. You can’t really learn how to put IVs in a computer. It doesn’t really work that way. I’m really excited to start practice on actual people,” said nursing major Abigail Childs.
The University is currently sitting at 16 active COVID-19 cases. However, University of Lynchburg officials say they believe it is not large gatherings but rather false senses of security in the dorms causing the numbers.
The University Communications VP Michael Jones seemed pleased with the students for the way COVID-19 has been handled.
“We haven’t experienced what they’ve experienced at many institutions where large gatherings have students resulted in many positive cases several days later. So that tells us that the students are taking this seriously,” Jones said.
