Keeping Campus Healthy

It is up to everyone to take personal responsibility to stay informed and take actions based on best practices and wise judgment in an effort to maintain face-to-face instruction while protecting the health and safety of the university community.

Through a working group of faculty, staff, administrators, and students, we continue to evaluate the challenges presented by COVID-19. The group has developed the Return to Campus Canvas Course and the Stay Safe Pledge. We expect all students, faculty, and staff members to complete the training. This will take less than 5 minutes. To complete the training, follow the three steps below:

  1. Log in to the Return to Campus Canvas Course.
  2. Work through the modules on Health & Safety Practices, Wearing a Face Covering, and Testing & Reporting.
  3. Do your part to keep campus healthy and safe.

Faculty, staff and students should self-assess for COVID-19 symptoms daily before going to class, work or campus. Check the Testing, Contact Tracing, and Isolation/Quarantine page for further information on if you become symptomatic.

Everyone is required to wear face coverings or masks on campus, as mandated by the Governor’s Executive Order. This includes in classrooms, labs, meetings, the library, and social gatherings. SUU will provide masks for those who do not have their own. Please maintain social distancing (6 feet apart) whenever possible.

All public areas are cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis (daily Monday - Friday). High touch points, such as door handles, elevator buttons, handrails etc., are disinfected multiple times per day. Disinfectant wipes will be available in each classroom should students desire to disinfect their own spaces.

All members of the SUU community and any authorized contractors or visitors are being asked to maintain a distance of 6 feet while on campus. The university has taken steps to proactively establish conditions, wherever possible, in the residential, dining, and academic settings, to facilitate maintaining a distance of 6 feet.

Hand sanitizing stations have been placed in key locations around campus, particularly in areas where hand washing is not available.

Consider using the Portal Entryways app to reduce the need to touch door handles as often. 

Please visit these public health sites for other precautions and information regarding the spread of the virus.
