As the Marshall University community prepares for the fall 2020 semester, the health and safety of everyone—students, faculty, staff and visitors—remains our highest priority. Please review Marshall University’s Return-to-Campus Plan (updated 7/16/2020). For more information register to attend a virtual Return-to-Campus Town Hall meeting.
Face coverings must be worn in university buildings, including during class and when out of personal workspaces.
Physical distancing of at least 6 feet is to be observed at all times.
The university will test all arriving international and residence hall students, student-athletes, and non-residence hall students from “hot spots” within the U.S., and will conduct sentinel surveillance testing of selected cohorts throughout the academic year.
Protocols are in place for case management, quarantine/self-isolation and contact tracing of any cases at the university.
All students and employees will complete an online training module about basic COVID-19 safety and awareness, and will sign an agreement to comply with public health expectations.
Students and employees will conduct self-administered health checks and report results through the university’s MarshallU Healthcheck app (details forthcoming).
Cleaning and disinfection of facilities is done in accordance with protocols recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, using Environmental Protection Agency-approved products effective against the COVID-19 virus.
Adjustments to the fall 2020 and spring 2021 academic calendars will minimize travel to and from campus after the terms begin.
University-sponsored travel (domestic and international) is on hold for both students and employees.
The purpose of these Town Halls is to help the Marshall University community understand the policies and procedures that will be implemented to keep our campus as safe and healthy as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each Town Hall will be in a webinar format with expert speakers.
