Physical Distancing

Updated: Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2020

Physical distancing, also called “social distancing,” defined as remaining six feet away from others, will be implemented in all classrooms, work settings, dining areas, residences, restrooms, outdoor spaces, and other areas of congregation across campus.

To practice social or physical distancing, stay at least six feet (about two arms’ length) from other people who are not from your household in both indoor and outdoor spaces.  Stay out of crowded spaces and do not gather in groups. Face masks must be worn outdoors.

Minimize people working in common spaces by allowing people to work remotely where appropriate, and consider staggering work schedules, where possible, to reduce contact. Meetings involving only employees, or employees and people outside of the University, should be held using remote tools such as Zoom.

The University’s plans and protocols are subject to change in response to evolving guidance from local, state, and federal government and public health officials. We will continue to update this website regularly and encourage you to check back often for the most up-to-date information.
