On Monday, Aug. 17, University of Southern Indiana (USI) students new and old alike returned to on-campus housing as the fall 2020 semester approaches.

New on-campus safety guidelines have been implemented by USI leaders in an effort to keep all faculty, staff, students, contractors, vendors, and visitors as safe as possible amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

While on the USI campus or University-owned and operated facilities, all individuals will be required to wear a facemask when in buildings, including classrooms. Masks will also be required in open office spaces and outdoor areas where social distancing isn't possible.

More rules regarding masks, social distancing, self-monitoring, and more have been put in place. A full list of the University's new rules and regulations can be found within USI's "Safe Return to Campus Plan." 

University officials say students who feel sick or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should stay off campus.

Anyone associated with the University who has symptoms of the virus, and anyone who has been exposed to the virus, should fill out the self-reporting form located on the COVID-19 page of the USI website, remain off campus, and contact their primary care physician for evaluation.

Classes for the fall semester at USI will begin on Aug. 24.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
