KITTLE: DO ‘NOT FALL VICTIM TO A NARRATIVE’

NATHAN STEPHANY, KV NEWS DIRECTOR

Kittle

Daniel Kittle, Wartburg College dean of students, made a statement regarding the college’s plan to handle the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“I don’t think that the college has taken anything off of the table in regards to what’s possible. Each day and each hour or two we’re revisiting best practices and the advice we get from public health professionals and trying to make a decision based on that information.”

Kittle encouraged students who might be feeling ill to visit Noah Health Clinic on the Wartburg campus, or the Waverly Health Center.

“Students and student leaders in particular need to find ways to support each other in these decisions,” Kittle said. “That’s what our staff is trying to do, to be supportive and encouraging, to not fall victim to a narrative that I think is counterproductive to both individuals own health and mental health, but to making good, sound decisions.”

A full story with statements from Dean Brian Ernsting and Dean Daniel Kittle will be released at a later time.
