Liberty University defied the narrative and did not completely close down over Coronavirus. They were dragged through the mud by the media because of this. Now they’re finishing the year with no cases.

Liberty, accused of being reckless hotspot for COVID, ends semester with zero campus cases

When the coronavirus began picking up speed in early March, most governors made the hard decision to lockdown their states. This led almost every college in the country to move the rest of their spring semesters online, and they sent most students packing.

But Liberty University quickly became an epicenter of media controversy when President Jerry Falwell Jr. announced he would reopen his campus to students who needed to stay, especially international ones who had nowhere else to go.

Falwell was accused of putting the campus community in a dangerous and reckless situation and publicly shamed as the mainstream media insisted Liberty would be a coronavirus hot spot.

Instead, it ended the school year with zero campus cases.

“We are thankful to God that nobody who lived in a campus residence hall or who worked in a campus office tested positive for the virus,” Falwell stated in a farewell note as the semester ended. “No positive COVID-19 test anywhere in our region was linked to Liberty students who returned to their dorm rooms after Spring Break.”

“The only COVID cases in the university community were employees working from home or offices off-campus and their infections were all traced to contacts in the local community with persons infected with COVID who were not related to Liberty.”
