Stratford University is operating at a “More-Risk”, but still low-risk level as all ground courses are currently being instructed in a hybrid environment through the use of the LMS platform Moodle and video conference software Zoom. The campus return plan is to continue to the hybrid approach beginning through the end of Term 1, 2022, to maintain a low-moderate risk level. The below information is guidance intended for the planning purposes of opening our campuses and incorporating safety measures and protocol to minimize the risk of exposure and spreading of the virus to all SU stakeholders.
The COVID-19 pandemic is inherently unpredictable, therefore the University leadership team will continue to monitor local, state, and federal directives and adjust the protocol plan to align with any new directives to ensure the continued health, safety and wellness of our students, faculty and staff.
To ensure the safe return to our campuses the university established a COVID-19 task force to research and create a protocol plan for campus reopening. The institutional task force utilized research and guidance from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Virginia Department of Health, the Maryland Department of Health and local city health departments to create the Stratford University return to campus protocol plan
STRATFORD UNIVERSITY SAFE RETURN TO CAMPUS PLAN IN RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Campuses will continue to be open in a revised phased approach to allow the smooth transition of employees returning to campuses. Campus Directors (CD) will work with their team to ensure their campuses maintain appropriate staffing levels to meet the needs of our students. Campuses are also encouraged to staff a security guard for late afternoon/early evening campus hours. Campus Directors will create the Monday-Saturday campus operating schedule based on the schedule of labs and in-person lecture classes for Term 1 and Term 2 of 2022. This schedule will be communicated to the campus employees and students prior to the start of the upcoming term. It is highly suggested that Campus Directors post the schedules of each department near the main lobby for transparency.
