Subject: Campus Life After Quarantine
To Our Wesleyan Community,
Tomorrow, we will emerge from our initial campus-wide quarantine. I want to thank you all for your patience and cooperation in following quarantine protocols. I know they are challenging, but your participation has been critical in starting off our spring as safely as possible.
As we enter the next phase of the semester, I write with important information about campus life post-quarantine starting February 22.
- Academics: Classes will be taught in their indicated modality (in-person, hybrid, or online).
- Dining: Grab-and-go dining will continue to be available with additional venues and hours. More information can be found on the Dining Website.
- Travel: Students may leave campus only to travel to grocery stores, pharmacies, and for medical appointments in Middletown.
- Libraries: Olin and Science Libraries are now open. Learn more about library hours and operations.
- Residence Halls: Students may visit with others who live in the same residence hall or program house, while wearing masks, maintaining six foot distancing and abiding by COVID capacities.
- Usdan University Center is open and available to students. No visitors are permitted.
- Health Services: The Davison Health Center is open by appointment only, and both telemedicine and face-to-face visits are available. More information is available on the website.
- Test and contact tracing: Please be sure you are complying with the University’s requirement for ongoing COVID-19 testing. Students and employees should schedule their own tests, which are required to remain on campus this semester. Students who miss more than three tests will be immediately required to leave campus and study remotely for the rest of the semester. Please use the form if you must miss a test due to extenuating circumstances.
- Athletics: Freeman Athletic Center is now open for all students. Please register via the online booking form.
By March 8, we will evaluate Middletown positivity rates and the possibility of opening off-campus travel to restaurants and retail outlets in Middletown as well as allowing students to visit other residences, including woodframes and apartments.
Finally, please ensure that you are familiar with the spring COVID Code of Conduct and continue to follow all the community guidelines detailed within at all times. We appreciate your care and attention in keeping our community safe.
