Posted by on Monday, June 22, 2020 in Community Messages.

While Nashville will enter the third phase of its Roadmap for Reopening beginning Monday, June 22, Vanderbilt University will continue to follow its own Return to Campus Plan, which is currently in Vanderbilt Phase 2.

The university will continue to ramp up various operations in orderly, sequential phases and will communicate with the Vanderbilt community in advance of each phase.

The plan can be viewed on the university’s Return to Campus website. >>

The following steps and precautions remain in place on the Vanderbilt campus during the university’s Phase 2:

  • On-campus research ramp-up to no more than 50 percent capacity, subject to minimum 6 feet of physical distancing and other safety protocols (e.g., face masks/coverings)
  • Graduate and professional student field-based training/learning allowed as informed by on-campus research activities phased opening and/or clinic/occupational site authorization.
  • Graduate and professional instruction online and preparation for on-campus activity continues.
  • Undergraduate instruction online and preparation for on-campus activity continues.
  • On-campus residential education preparation for on-campus activity continues.
  • Staff recalled to campus when needed on campus to directly support research, instruction and residential living. Others working remotely.
  • Staff who are to be recalled to campus will be notified by their supervisors, and only those who need to be on campus to directly support activity ramp-up will be requested to return to campus. Others will continue working remotely.
  • All those on campus must abide by the protocols outlined on this site
    (e.g., symptom monitoring, face masks/coverings, physical distancing, etc.).
  • Gatherings up to 10 as long as physical distancing can be maintained and safety protocols (e.g., face masks/coverings) are followed.
