COVID-19: Return to Campus Guidelines and Recommendations

COVID-19: Return to Campus Guidelines and Recommendations

December 28, 2020

Fall 2020 was a whirlwind semester, but we made it to the end because we worked as a community to minimize COVID-19 transmission on campus.  Unfortunately, COVID-19 is not going away.  So we need to keep working together and start the Spring 2021 Semester strong.

That means we need to think about how we return to campus.

To keep our community safe we recommend you:

  • Self-quarantine for 7 days before coming back to campus. A self-quarantine could look like staying at home and limiting interactions with other humans prior to coming back to campus.
  • Get tested in the 7 days prior to returning to campus. Here is a list of COVID-19 testing providers.  Hy-Vee has free asymptomatic and symptomatic testing, and it’s a simple nose-swab all while sitting in your car.  You can register for the Hy-Vee testing here.
  • Wear your mask on and off campus! Adair County passed a mask mandate at the end of November.

A comprehensive guide to general COVID-19 protocols can be found here, as well as on the University’s Coronavirus website.  Members of the Truman community who may need to quarantine or isolate can find protocols for that here.
