    " Liberty is resumed at home and meetings in a balanced way that both allow members of the campus community to select the university experiences they want and respect the rights and responsibilities of individuals to make basic health decisions about the use of vaccination And the mask, "said a statement from the university.

    And the university said in the statement that "it will continue to offer a digital instruction option for students for a period of time; special permission will not be required to attend virtually during this time."

    While freedom is encouraging, but does not require social distancing and mask to use "the university will continue to foster social hygiene practices, such as physical distancing and mask when useful," said the statement.

    Liberty has some student support to raise the quarantine that has been valid for the campus.

    A university student, Landon Nesbitt, began a petition that says: "We, Liberty students, feel that the University should fulfill its promises: in person who learns. For many students, the nature of freedoms that encompasses the University of Liberty (no masks are required, in people with conferences and teaching), it is the same reason why this university was chosen for higher education. This blockade was unexpected and unwanted by the vast majority of Students here on campus. Therefore, students request the end of this block. " googleg.cmd.push (function () googleg.display ("dfp-ad-article_in_article"););

    More than 1,200 students have signed the petition.

    However, the mayor of Lynchburg, Maryjane Tousignant-Dolan, told Washington Post that she found Liberty's actions "alarming".

    "I only think it is inconceivable that an institution as great as Liberty has not instituted some steps to keep his students alone and healthy, but to the community in which they live," she said.

    The University of La Salle in Pennsylvania said his decision: Stopping and restarting instruction in person, was based on a careful study of Covid-19 cases.
