Students returned to Liberty University after spring break this week, even as colleges and universities across the country have sent students home to try to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Earlier this month, Jerry Falwell jr., the school’s president, said on Fox News that people were Overreacting to the coronavirus pandemic and that the campus would open as usual this week. A few days later, after Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) banned gatherings of 100 people or more, Falwell reversed course and Said most classes would be conducted online.

Trump has in recent days appeared to balk at a growing US shutdown in the face of the virus and claimed the US would reopen soon – alarming many health professionals.

Falwell, one of Trump’s most loyal supporters, called the decision to reopen a “responsibility to students” to “enjoy the room and board they’ve already paid for”.

At liberty residence halls will reopen, despite most classes moving online, faculty members were directed to report to campus.

“I think we, in a way, are protecting the students by having them on campus together,” Falwell said. Falwell then invoked a since disproven theory that young people “don’t have conditions that put them at risk”.

In an interview with The Washington Post on Tuesday, Falwell Said Liberty is “abiding by the letter of the law.” He told the governor’s chief of staff that What Liberty was doing was no different from what other schools were doing.

“But we’re Liberty,” Falwell said, “so we get picked on.”

LIBERTY UNIVERSITY, Jerry Falwell jr.

Falwell said the university is taking precautions in consultation with health experts, including switching to online instruction for most classes, cleaning surfaces hourly and serving meals as takeout only. Signs on chairs remind people not to sit too close together, he said, and students are using only every third computer in the computer center. The fitness center was limited to 10 people at a time, he said, but the school planned to close it Tuesday night.

Liberty students will return days after Virginia’s governor, Ralph Northam, closed all state schools for the rest of the academic year and directed all non-essential businesses to close by Wednesday.

It is unclear how that order will affect Liberty University.
