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.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
