Our goal is for all students, faculty, and staff to stay safe and well on campus this fall. For their part, students should follow good personal hygiene practices, make healthy choices, and follow the campus’s guidelines regarding hand washing, physical distancing, limiting large group gatherings, etc.
Public health experts tell us that it is likely that we will have cases of COVID-19 on campus this fall. We urge every student to have a plan for what they will do if they are exposed or become ill with COVID-19.
Any student who is ill should stay home, not go to class, consult their personal medical provider, and notify the University Health Center
. Should a student test positive for COVID-19 or experience symptoms indicative of likely infection, our staff will coordinate with staff from the University Health Center and the local Health Department to provide support and take appropriate measures which may include the student self-isolating on campus or at home during the period of their illness.
Whenever possible, we urge students to rest and recuperate at home but we recognize that going home won't be an option for everyone. The University will maintain a number of quarantine and isolation spaces available should an on-campus resident need to temporarily relocate during a quarantine or isolation period.
