Return-to-Campus Plan

The health and safety of everyone – students, faculty, staff and visitors – remain Marshall University’s highest priority. Please review the Return-to-Campus Plan (updated July 2021).

COVID-19 Data Monitoring for Decision Making

University leaders monitor a number of key metrics. Any decision to implement contingencies will not be based on one factor but on a combination of metrics providing insight into the health and safety of the campus community.

Fall 2021 Plan Highlights

Masks are required in all instructional settings, including classrooms, laboratories, studios, etc., regardless of vaccination status. People who are fully vaccinated are no longer required to wear a mask in other indoor spaces on university property. Unvaccinated individuals must wear face coverings at all times inside university buildings, including when out of personal residence hall rooms and workspaces.
Marshall does not require the COVID-19 vaccine;  however, it is strongly encouraged. Students enrolled for the fall 2021 semester are required to submit their current vaccine status in the online Student Vaccination Registry to help university officials gauge whether or not herd immunity has been reached on campus. The registry offers several possible responses, including an option to not disclose vaccine status.
Unvaccinated individuals are asked to observe social distancing both indoors and outdoors.
The university is testing all unvaccinated on-campus students and employees at the start of the fall semester. There is also ongoing required sentinel surveillance testing of randomly selected cohorts of unvaccinated on-campus students and employees. Vaccinated students and employees are exempt from testing requirements unless requested as part of contact tracing protocols.
The university is returning to its regular academic calendar for fall 2021.
All students must sign an agreement to comply with public health expectations and all policies and guidelines.
Protocols are in place for case management, quarantine/self-isolation and contact tracing of all cases at the university.

If you are exposed, you will not required to quarantine if you have been fully vaccinated against the disease and show no symptoms.

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.
University-sponsored travel (domestic and international) continues to be restricted for both students and employees. All international travel must be registered in advance using the online International Travel Registration Form.
