Anticipated Schedule for Re-entry to Campus

These phases are highly dependent on external conditions and need to be responsive to the evolution of the virus. They are based on a cautiously optimistic assumption that a return to a modified model of on-campus instruction and activity will resume in the fall. 

During Modified Business Operations Yellow - Phase I starting May 26, individuals involved in university research and clinical activities will be among the first to return to campus in this gradual re-entry plan. At this time, detailed plans with specific timing have not been determined for other individuals and groups to return. Unit leaders will receive additional guidance for implementation of individual operational plans that follow established re-entry conditions to facilitate their teams’ return at the appropriate time(s). University leadership will review proposed operational plans. Unit leaders will implement their unit-specific operational plan once approved and communicate updates with their team.
