Our full Healthy Campus Plan is available online. Below is a summary of its key components:

Measures to Prevent Exposure

We will take the following proactive measures to protect our campus community from exposure to the COVID-19 virus during the Fall 2020 Semester:

  • Universal Masking (effective filtration face coverings), required in all classroom settings and University indoor public shared spaces, will be free and available on campus
  • Personal Hygiene emphasized throughout the semester including proper hand-washing and the use of hand-sanitizer dispensing stations located throughout campus
  • Social Distancing maintained in all classroom settings and University indoor public shared spaces enabled by redesigned and remodeled public spaces that will provide easier social distancing options for students; newly implemented processes, such as mobile ordering for students with meal plans, will help reduce crowding and wait times
  • Enhanced Professional Surface Cleaning in all classroom settings and University indoor public shared spaces using approved antiseptic products, including electrostatic sprayers where appropriate and sanitizing wipes provided in all classroom settings
  • True HEPA-grade Air Cleaning and Purification in all classroom settings, University Housing, and University indoor public shared spaces using newly installed state-of-the-art technology to circulate, filter, and sanitize the air in all rooms and buildings on campus, including filtering and ionic purifiers
Measures to Identify Infection and Minimize Spread

We will implement the following measures to identify and minimize the risk of spreading the virus:

  • Upgraded Wellness Center, including an On-campus COVID-19 Testing Center with same-day test results, overseen by Suzanne Garcia, PA-C, and Dane McBride, MD
  • Health Screening Survey required daily before entering campus for all students, faculty, professional staff, as well as any campus visitors
  • Isolation Housing, including contact-free food delivery, designated for students living in University Housing who test positive for the virus
  • Quarantine Housing, including contact-free food delivery, designated for students living in University Housing identified as a “close contact” of an individual who tests positive, or who otherwise meet criteria for quarantining
  • Increased Training across Campus on best practices to reduce risk of exposure and assist students with accessing wellness resources with special emphasis in key strategic areas such as Food Services, University Housing, and the Wellness Center
