Review the latest Marshall University COVID-19 data.
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.
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 8/14/2020).
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 tested 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 students and employees 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 will complete an online training module about basic COVID-19 safety and awareness, and will 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. Daily healthchecks also will be required of any employee in self-isolation or quarantine for COVID-19.
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.
