Dear UD Community:
We are excited to begin the fall 2022 semester at the University of
Delaware, welcoming our newest class of Blue Hens as we come together on
campus to create a vibrant UD experience for all. To this end, we want
to be as proactive as possible to start the semester keeping the health
of our UD community a top priority.
COVID-19 continues to spread across the nation, now with the highly
transmissible BA.5 Omicron variant. We know from campus experience over
the past two and a half years that COVID-19 cases tend to surge at the
beginning of each semester, largely due to the sharp increase in campus
density as students arrive at UD from various locations around the
United States and the world. These surges are fairly short lived (1-2
weeks) and are typically not replicated until the next semester.
Accordingly, the University will be requiring face masks to be
worn in all classrooms, research laboratories and all UD transportation
for the first two weeks of the semester, from Aug. 30 through Sept. 9,
2022. (Individuals may remove their masks during active instruction /
presenting if they are more than six feet away from others.) The intent
of this measure is to help reduce the transmission of COVID associated
with the rapid density increase on campus, while preserving as much
academic continuity as possible. Masks continue to be required in all
healthcare and clinical spaces, as well as the Children’s Campus.
Please note that KN95 masks and surgical masks will be available at
residence hall check-ins. In addition, masks will be available at Morris
Library, Carpenter Sports Building, Perkins Student Center, Trabant
University Center and STAR Health Science Complex (North entrance). As
always, all members of the UD community may choose to wear a mask at any
time in all campus settings.
As a reminder, PCR testing will be available on the North Green Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Curative beginning Aug. 29. Appointments are strongly encouraged; please visit www.udel.edu/coronavirus for more information as it becomes available.
UD will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation for our community,
including evaluation of state/county cases and risk levels, campus
wastewater surveillance to track patterns of viral presence and staying
informed by national guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to determine further mitigation measures, if necessary.
We appreciate everyone’s patience during this two-week period to help
us all move forward with a productive, healthy and enjoyable fall
