People walk across the campus at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. on Friday, March 27, 2020. Jerry Falwell, a staunch ally of President Donald Trump and an influential voice in the evangelical world, reopened the Liberty university last week, igniting a firestorm, epidemiologically and otherwise.

LYNCHBURG, VA. – As Liberty University's spring break was drawing to a close this month, Jerry Falwell, its president, spoke with the physician who runs Liberty's student health service about the rampaging coronavirus.

"We've lost the ability to corral this thing," Dr. Thomas Eppes said he told Falwell. But he did not urge him to close the school. "I just am not going to be so presumptuous as to say, 'This is what you should do, and this is what you shouldn't do,' " Eppes said in an interview.
