CAMPUS GUIDELINES


Protective Measures

Six feet of social distancing will be established in all shared spaces including classrooms and chapel.

Increased cleaning and disinfecting will occur in all common areas and high touch surface areas including doorknobs, light switches, bathroom fixtures, and desks/tables. Hand sanitizer will be available at the main entrances of all buildings and in all classrooms.

Plexiglass barriers have been installed in various locations around campus, including the Patten Hall Library, Bookstore, receptionist desks, and Benson Hall.

Events

All campus visitors will go through a screening process before attending the events. In compliance with State and National authorities, masks will be required as currently mandated.

For athletic events, masks will be required for all in attendance, except athletes actively participating in the games. In addition, seating capacity will be reduced to 30% capacity (180 spectators) per event in the Nettleton Center. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start time. For additional guidelines to athletics events, click here.

By attending an event on campus, individuals are agreeing that you and anyone in your party:

  • has not had a persistent, dry cough.
  • has not had a headache.
  • has not been diagnosed with or had contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  • has a NEW loss of taste or smell.
  • will take each person’s temperature before arriving to verify the absence of a fever (in excess of 100.4º).

If an individual cannot confirm that they are free from COVID-19 symptoms (see list above), they will be graciously asked to leave campus.

Faculty members are strongly encouraged to not attend indoor athletic events. A quality livestream for select events, including all games, will be available for those unable to attend in person.
