Kent State's Current COVID-19 Response

Kent State applauds Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s proactive approach to keeping our state safe during the ongoing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). We must all do what’s right to stop the spread of the virus in our community and we've been focused on that by way of our reopening phases.


On Oct. 8, 2020,  Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced that Portage County’s COVID-19 Risk Level has been raised to a Level 3 Red status. The Kent Campus resides in Portage County, and as such, must adhere to the state's guidelines for counties. Campuses may adjust operations when the state of Ohio COVID Risk Level status for their county is changed, including the addition of restrictions when the county risk level is raised, or the return to previous operations when the county risk level is lowered. As a result, please note:
