What Commuter Students Can Expect for Spring 2021
The health and safety of the Marywood campus depends on a deep culture of care for every member of the community, and this includes our commuter students. All students attending campus in-person must provide proof of a negative COVID test prior to the start of the spring semester. In place of testing we will accept proof of a positive COVID-19 test result obtained from November 1, 2020 to date or completion of the vaccination series. Commuter students received an email about on-campus COVID testing available prior to the start of the spring semester.
Proof of COVID-19 entry/re-entry testing and/or completion of the COVID-19 vaccine must be uploaded electronically to the Student Health Portal. All documents must be legible and in English. To complete your Health Information Requirements please log into your Student Health Portal using your MU username and password and upload your required documents.
We must be diligent—in every hour of every day and in each personal decision we make—to safeguard our own health and the health of others. Every member of the community should monitor their own health and conduct a daily health check. If you do not feel well, do not report to campus, instead seek medical consultation and follow provider recommendations prior to coming to campus.
It is not necessary or generally recommended to go home between classes, unless you have many hours between classes. This is a personal decision for every commuter student. Gathering areas on campus will be de-densified.
Commuter lounges and areas within the Learning Commons will remain open with physical distancing and masks must be worn. Housekeeping will increase their cleaning frequency in common areas, following CDC guidelines. An evening cleaning shift, 3 to 11 p.m., is in effect to ensure common areas and common restrooms are disinfected more often.
