Please continue to check your D&E email for the latest information related to the pandemic.

PCR Testing is required and must be submitted prior to returning to campus for:
• Anyone who is unvaccinated

PLEASE NOTE: Per OSHA regulations, any unvaccinated employees will be required to produce weekly tests beginning January 10, 2022
• Anyone who is presenting with symptoms
• Anyone who has had a known exposure to COVID
• Anyone who has traveled beyond the 90-mile radius and/or has used mass transportation in the past seven (7) days

Campus-wide testing will take place January 11-12 between 10AM and 2PM in the Timms Lounge. All students must be tested; faculty and staff can test if they wish or have reason for concern.

Those who test positive will be evaluated by medical professionals to determine next steps. Asymptomatic individuals will self-isolate for five days, symptomatic individuals will be offered alternative housing for their five-day isolation, and very severe cases will be treated with the highest sense of urgency and will have access to the highest-level medical care needed.

Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing practices have been put into place for all common, living and learning spaces in an effort to limit the spread of any and all germs associated with COVID, influenza, etc.

As isolation requirements impact class attendance, faculty will be asked to follow the existing “excused absence” protocols and practices currently in place.

Mandatory indoor masking is being imposed at this time until further notice. College officials will continually evaluate this along with positivity rates on campus. When deemed safe, the requirement will be lifted.

At this time, D&E Athletics will allow spectators at all contests. Based on the face covering requirement, all spectators must be masked inside campus facilities.

We continue to work closely with local and state health officials and want to do all within our power to maintain a safe living, learning and work environment for our D&E campus community. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
