Jan. 20, 2022 Memo:
STUDENT COVID-19 POLICY SHIFT
I hope your first days of classes have been going well. As shared in my email last week, USJ monitors current campus and community trends to help inform policy decisions. I am happy to share that our arrival testing for residential students yielded only two positive COVID-19 cases, far fewer than initially anticipated. Based on this data, we are making the following changes effective Friday, January 21, 2022:
- The residence hall visitation ban has been lifted. Resident students may visit residence halls they do not reside in. Non-resident guests are still not permitted.
- In-person dining will resume. Students on meal plans will continue to have the option of grab-and-go meals for the remainder of the semester.
Residential students will participate in surveillance testing over the next two weeks. Should there be a significant increase in cases on campus, we will pivot to make appropriate policy changes.
I hope these changes provide you with opportunities to engage safely with your fellow students in meaningful ways. We have done a fantastic job up to this point, and we must continue to work together to keep our entire campus safe.
