Campbell University will resume in-person classes on Monday, Oct. 12, after a two-week pause due to a spike in main campus COVID-19 cases, President J. Bradley Creed announced this week.
Creed attributed the “meticulous response” of students, faculty and staff — as well as the work of the University’s Health and Safety Committee — to a dramatic decrease in active positive cases.
