Safe Plans for Campus & Travel Related Guidance
With the start of the term less than two months away, we find the pandemic moving in the wrong direction. If you’re like us, you are worried about the record numbers of new cases across the country, including here in Pierce County. We’re planning for all that will be required for us to safely participate in PLU’s learning community and to keep one another healthy and well.
We sent out another email earlier today about additional fall preparations, but we wanted to share our expectations specifically for travel-related quarantine and testing guidance. In this message, we’ll outline our expectations for students joining our community, including residential and commuter students, returning continuing students, and first-year students joining us for the first time.
Our return plan includes two stages: the pre-arrival period leading up to your return to campus, and the immediate post-return period. We’ll outline expectations for these two periods here, as well as our expectations for travel to campus.
Thank you for showing up for this challenge in the way that Lutes do, by committing to following through on each of these expectations. The health and well-being of every member of our community depends on it.
