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 Aug. 30 and provide on-campus offerings through Dec. 17.
Face coverings are required indoors and students participating in on-campus experiences must have begun the process (by Aug. 20) to become fully vaccinated and enter their status on the UMS online portal. There are exemptions for a documented medical contraindication or a sincerely held religious belief. Students may also participate solely in remote learning.
There will be a phased return for residence hall students to allow for self-quarantine.
We will conduct COVID-19 asymptomatic testing weekly, starting in August, 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.
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.
