LOCK HAVEN, CLINTON COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) After an elevated number of positive COVID-19 cases, Lock Haven University (LHU) has decided to transition to 100% remote instruction for the next two weeks.
The positivity rate stood at 4.9% on Tuesday, September 1, while LHU’s cap for re-evaluation stands at 5% to provide a safe on-campus learning environment.

- The library will remain open for pick-up only.
- All other campus facilities, including the student recreation center, will be closed for the two-week period.
- No guests or visitors are permitted in either on-campus housing or at Evergreen Commons”
