Student COVID Guidelines

General Guidelines

Masks

Students should follow all applicable state, county, and city mask and social distancing requirements. At this time, that means all students must wear a mask while on campus.

Social Distancing

Students must maintain appropriate social distancing while on campus. Students should not alter any seating arrangements. Each campus space has been carefully staged to accommodate the maximum number of students while maintaining social distancing.

Isolation and Self-Quarantine

The following guidelines are based on the current CDC guidance.

If you have tested positive for COVID you may return to campus when:

  • 14 days have passed from the onset of COVID 19 symptoms and you have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines.

If you are feeling ill, have a fever, or show any symptoms of COVID:

  • 14 days have passed from the onset of COVID 19 symptoms and you have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines.

If you have had close contact with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID:

  • you should isolate yourself and may not return for 14 days following your last contact with someone with a known case of COVID.

If you live with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID:

  • you may not return to campus until 14 days after the end of the COVID patient’s quarantine.

If you have traveled internationally:

  • you may not come to campus until 14 days after your arrival in the US.

Specific Guidelines

Social Distancing and Classroom Space

Due to the unique circumstances surrounding the pandemic and social distancing requirements, we cannot guarantee that space will be available for every student who wishes to attend Fall 2020 courses in person. Every effort will be made to provide space for students who wish to take classes face to face. However, should social distancing requirements and enrollment numbers prevent us from offering seats to every student, professors will work with their students on a mandatory rotation schedule to provide equitable opportunity for on-ground participation for those students who desire it.

Moving Between Class Modalities

We have worked hard to provide a variety of ways for you to continue your studies this semester despite the pandemic. Courses will have on-ground, live-streaming and recorded options. It is important, however, to keep in mind that moving between these modalities is only appropriate due to changes related to COVID. Moving between on-ground and live-streaming is not being made available to accommodate schedule changes, or week to week preferences. Shifting between modalities will be allowed, but only for changes related to COVID. If you are feeling ill, have been exposed to COVID, have a fever, or your or a family member has an underlying condition that makes it necessary for you to change the way you are attending class, then you need to coordinate that shift with your professor.
