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. Click here for details.
Face coverings must be worn in university buildings, including during class and when out of personal residence hall rooms and workspaces.
Physical distancing of at least 6 feet is to be observed at all times.
The university is testing on-campus students and employees at the start of the spring semester. There is also ongoing required sentinel surveillance testing of randomly selected cohorts of students to help detect potentially infected individuals, including those who may have no symptoms, and to keep them from infecting others.
Protocols are in place for case management, quarantine/self-isolation and contact tracing of any cases at the university.
All students and employees must complete an online training module about basic COVID-19 safety and awareness, and sign an agreement to comply with public health expectations, and all policies and guidelines.
All on-campus students, including those who are on campus sporadically for classes or student services, will conduct daily self-administered health checks and report results through MarshallU Healthcheck.
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 spring 2021 academic calendar minimize travel to and from campus after the term begins.
University-sponsored travel (domestic and international) is on hold for both students and employees. All personal international travel must be registered in advance using the online International Travel Registration Form
