These numbers are based on UMPI’s Asymptomatic Testing program. They do not reflect Active Cases or Quarantined individuals identified through other means.
If you’re looking for a quick overview before you check out the plan itself, here are the top 6 things you need to know:
We plan to start classes on Jan. 18 and provide on-campus offerings through May 7. The first week of classes will be taught remotely to ensure the safety of in person instruction.
Multi-layer face coverings are required indoors and eating in shared spaces should be minimized in order to maximize the time face coverings are worn.
We will conduct COVID-19 asymptomatic testing weekly, starting in January, for those who are exempted and those who are not yet fully vaccinated and will be on-campus for classes, work, or daily living. Others are encouraged to take part in voluntary weekly testing. Starting Feb. 1, students with on-campus experiences who are not up to date with their COVID-19 vaccine shots (including any booster doses when eligible) will be required to participate in weekly asymptomatic testing. Get Testing Center hours.
Classes will be a mix of live, online, and hybrid–simultaneously in-person and virtual.
Health safety practices will continue to be in place, including deep cleaning and testing.
