ONU Taking Steps to Keeping Students/Staff Safe on Campus

Posted on January 14, 2021

Here is just some of what ONU is doing to keep our campus safe:

.MODIFIED CALENDAR- Classes begin on Jan. 19 and end on May 7 with a class day off in February, March and April.

.PROVIDED POLAR PACKS TO ALL STUDENTS- A safety pack which includes a fabric face covering, thermometer, hand sanitizer and a first aid kit.

.MULTIPLE DELIVERY METHODS- Classes will be delivered using multiple methods in order to maximize in-person instruction. However, hybrid instruction and remote learning technology may be implemented to ensure social distancing and where it is necessary to accommodate individual student or faculty needs.

.VIRUS TESTING AND CONTROL PROCEDURES- We will conduct regular surveillance testing on a sample population of students, faculty, and staff as well as test anyone who has come in contact with an infected person.

.EXTENSIVE CLEANING AND DISINFECTING- Frequently touched surfaces (doorknobs, handrails, tables, etc.) are cleaned 2x a day; McIntosh Center, residence hall restrooms and common areas, athletic facilities, etc. are cleaned 3x a day. Hand sanitizer is readily available in high-contact areas in all buildings.

.FACE COVERINGS- Face coverings will be mandatory for all students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors while in the presence of others both indoors and outdoors.
