The University of Evansville (UE) entered Stage 4 of its phased reopening plan on Wednesday.
Under stage 4 of the university's reopening plan, new health and safety protocols will be implemented to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission on campus.
The Stage 4 guidelines call on all students, faculty, staff, and visitors to wear masks whenever inside a public campus building and when outside where social distancing can't be maintained. UE will provide one mask per individual, and certain exceptions to the rule have been made for medical reasons.
Additional best-practices include the frequent washing of hands and adhering to social distancing guidelines.
Events involving visitors to campus will also be "reduced and carefully monitored," according to UE. Areas with frequent off-campus visitors will be provided with infrared thermometers to monitor temperatures, as well as plexiglass barriers and floor signage to maintain a safe distance.
All students, faculty, and staff are also asked to self-monitor for and report all symptoms of COVID-19. UE has asked all campus members to take their temperature at least once, and preferably twice a day,
UE's 2020 fall semester is now set to begin on Aug 26 after being delayed due to COVID-19.
