Bluejays, unite! We have returned to in-person, campus-based learning and living, plus a full array of on-campus courses and activities.
To keep our community safe and successful, please follow the steps outlined below to help us all navigate the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Fall Term Guidelines
- We highly recommend that individuals get vaccinated and boosted. Vaccines and boosters continue to be among the most effective tools to combat COVID-19 and help protect our community.
- As we are in flu season, the Task Force encourages everyone to get the flu vaccine and wash their hands thoroughly and often on a daily basis. Use hand sanitizer whenever possible. This will help in the prevention of acquiring the flu and/or COVID.
- Masking is not required, though anyone is welcome to wear a mask. Our values of community and responsibility require that we treat each other with grace, respect, and civility, whether or not someone chooses to wear a mask.
- Testing is available in the Wellness Center. The Wellness Center has rapid tests. If you would like a PCR Test, you must go off-campus to be tested. If you are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms (fever, congestion, chills, headache, fatigue, loss of taste or smell, etc.) please notify the center prior to your arrival for a test.
- If you test positive for COVID-19, you must isolate for five days (preferably off-campus) and continue to wear a mask for at least an additional five days. During your isolation period, do not attend classes in person. The University does not provide isolation spaces.
- The University no longer conducts Contract Tracing.
- The University is no longer requiring proof of vaccinations or boosters. Please note that some academic programs, student activities, etc., may require proof of vaccination for participation.
- We will continue to monitor governmental and public health guidelines, along with current reports from the scientific community. If there is a shift in COVID-19 indicators that requires action, our campus community should remain prepared to re-implement mitigation strategies to reduce the potential for transmission.
