The health and wellness of our campus community is our top priority. Spalding will continue to abide by federal, state and local guidelines. Any of the university’s policies are subject to change based on the state of the pandemic.
Here are some of the key measures we can all take to prevent the spread.
Check your health daily.
Take your temperature.
Before taking the daily health assessment and coming to campus, students, faculty, staff and visitors need to take their temperature.
Complete the health assessment.
Every person in our learning community is required to use #CampusClear, a daily health assessment self-screening app to gain access to buildings on campus.
- Download at Apple App Store or Google Play
- Create an account using your university email
- Make sure to enable notifications
- Self-screen daily (#CampusClear will send 1 daily reminder notification)
Wash your hands often.
Frequently washing your hands protects you and others by helping to prevent the spread of germs and viruses.
- Wash before and after visiting public places, eating, using the restroom, sneezing, coughing, blowing your nose, etc.
- Wash with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- If soap and water is not available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
Hand sanitizer dispensers installed across campus will remain in place. Regardless of your vaccination status, please continue to use them regularly as well as practicing frequent, thorough hand-washing throughout the day.
It’s optional, but strongly encouraged.
Please get vaccinated!
At this time, COVID-19 vaccines are not mandated for any member of the Spalding community, but they are strongly encouraged. The university is reviewing whether or not to require vaccines and will notify the campus community if a change in policy takes place.
- If a student has any questions about the safety or efficacy of vaccines or is unsure where to get a shot, please contact the Eagle Care Health Clinic at email@example.com.
- Information on vaccine sites near your area can be found at vaccines.gov.
Personal Protection Equipment
Wear a mask (Optional).
Spalding’s mask mandate was lifted on June 30, 2021 for individuals who have been vaccinated for COVID-19.
- If you are not fully vaccinated, continue to wear a mask and practice physical distancing in all public, indoor settings on campus. Unvaccinated individuals should follow prevailing CDC guidelines for preventing illness and the spread of the virus.
- Any vaccinated individual who prefers to wear a mask in any setting will be welcome to do so. Even though masks won’t be required for all, it would be appropriate to continue carrying and wearing a mask as a courtesy to others who may feel more comfortable with having people wear them in close quarters.
How to wear your mask correctly (from the CDC):
- Wash your hands before putting on your mask
- Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
- Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
- Make sure you can breathe easily
Maintain social distance.
Keep at least 6 feet apart.
Individuals can still practice social distancing to reduce the risk of getting and spreading COVID-19.
