Lynchburg, Virginia -- Liberty University is “prohibiting” its employees from communicating with former President Jerry Falwell Jr. or his wife, Becki, regarding university matters.

In an email obtained by 10 News Friday, staff were reminded about the ongoing investigation into the university’s operations during Falwell’s tenure and “ensured” Falwell is not influencing the investigation in any way.

The message was from current President Jerry Prevo and the Board of Trustees.

This comes after a POLITICO article that quoted students and employees, saying they don’t expect Falwell Jr. to resume his duties, and they were “perplexed” by his repeated appearances on campus.

The university did not respond to our request for comment.
