Commodores Care Period

Posted by on Saturday, January 16, 2021 in .

All undergraduate students returning to campus for in-person learning for the spring semester, including students living in residence halls or Greek houses or in off-campus locations, will be required to participate in the newly launched Commodores Care period, intended to support the health of our community and reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19.

During the “quiet” Commodores Care period, from Monday, Jan. 25, through Wednesday, Feb. 3, students with negative test results and without symptoms may:

  • Leave their residences to attend in-person classes,
  • Pick up to-go food or supplies,
  • Seek medical attention,
  • Engage in outdoor activities that do not involve close contact, such as walking, hiking or running.

Students with positive test results or with symptoms must follow the university’s quarantine and isolation requirements.

During this period, all other university programming and student organization activities will be virtual. Student interactions should also be virtual during this timeframe. You must not participate in gatherings or engage in in-person social interactions. Students are always required to follow safety protocols, including wearing face coverings and maintaining physical distance.

Additional in-person activities may resume on Thursday, Feb. 4, unless students are otherwise notified by the university.
