University asks groups not to congregate on campus

In light of the governor’s order to “stay at home,” the increasing number of    COVID-19 cases in Ohio and our desire to keep the Bluffton village community safe, the administration at Bluffton University is asking the general public to not congregate in groups on campus grounds while social distancing is being mandated.

For example, we have been made aware that groups of young people are gathering to play pickup games of soccer and flag football on campus.
