SALISBURY – Later than usual, but well prepared, Livingstone College began classes on Thursday.

Chief Operating Officer Anthony Davis said if the college did not feel confident in its safety measures, it would not have invited students back to campus.

The college has taken on a litany of prevention measures as part of its re-entry plan. Everyone on campus, faculty, students and staff, were tested for COVID-19.
