Oklahoma State University officials said on Thursday that it "will require students living on campus to complete a COVID-19 test before checking in to campus housing."

Officials also said the university will have staggered, assigned move-in times for students and "no more than 850 people moving in on any given day spread throughout 31 residence halls."

OSU says students living on campus are being asked to only bring two people to help them move in.

OSU also said it will require students and staff to wear a mask any time they are in a public area or outside of their assigned living unit.

Officials said the university has roughly 300 bed spaces available for quarantine; however, students may be asked to quarantine in place as well.

Officials said OSU is taking measures to protect students and has installed "social distancing markers, plexiglass shields on desks, centrally located hand sanitizer stations in the halls, designated entrance and exit doors, designated up and down stairwells and new air filters installed in every air handling unit."
