Path Forward Messages - 2021-22

Dear faculty, staff and students, 

With the rise in COVID cases, we want to update you on the status of the pandemic on the UD campus. As expected, the highly transmissible omicron variant is causing increases in cases on campus, as it has in the local community and throughout the U.S. 

Through discussions with public health officials and our medical advisory panel, we expect to see elevated case levels for a time, followed by a decrease. It is very challenging to predict how long it might take before cases decrease, but we expect our campus to follow trends in other areas where the omicron variant is beginning to abate.

The University remains committed to maintaining in-person learning for our students while taking appropriate steps to reduce the risk within classrooms and other settings. With the pandemic heading into its third year, one thing is clear at all levels of education — students, faculty, staff and parents know that in-person education is crucial to student success and mental wellbeing. Education is an essential service, and just like other industries, we must learn to live with this virus in order to carry out our educational mission and our commitments to our students. 

Based on our contact tracing efforts, we can report to you that the spread on campus is happening primarily in social settings, family gatherings, bars and restaurants. We have not seen spread of the virus in classrooms or office settings where proper masking protocols are being followed. 

  • Masks — especially the medical grade masks the University is providing to students, faculty and staff — are highly effective in protecting against the virus and helping prevent spread.
  • We continue to encourage everyone to limit your exposure by avoiding crowds and wearing the medical grade masks consistently when you are around other individuals not in your family unit.  

We are keeping a close eye on the campus status level. At this time our contact tracing team continues to be able to trace cases effectively and faculty and staff shortages have not broadly impacted course delivery and other essential services. We feel the current safety protocols and restrictions are appropriate for existing conditions and are helping to slow the spread of the virus, providing they are followed. We will continue to monitor conditions, and are ready to change the campus status level if this situation changes. Regardless of the campus status level, you should continue to be vigilant in protecting your personal safety and those around you.

A couple of reminders to help us all get through this period of increased cases:

  • Masks should stay on at all times in classrooms. There should be no eating or drinking in class prompting masks to be removed. We ask students, faculty and staff to both support this requirement and encourage others to follow it as well.
  • Students can get medical grade masks at the main desks of their residence halls, the Kennedy Union information desk, Kettering Labs and Roesch Library welcome desks, Daniel J. Curran Place front desk, RecPlex main desk, the UD Bookstore, the UD Student Health Center and Premier After Hours Urgent Care across from the Student Health Center and above the bookstore. Please wear these in all academic settings. Because masks are available to students in many student-centered locations, supplies of medical grade masks in academic buildings are reserved for faculty and staff in those buildings. 
  • If you are tested at a location other than the Health Center or Premier After Hours Urgent Care in Marianist Hall, you must report to the University if you test positive or are a close contact of someone with COVID-19. For students, this will trigger a “life event” notification to your advisor and faculty. If you do not report to the University, faculty will follow normal processes to record absences. You should communicate with your instructor to make arrangements for any absences or missed assignments.
  • If you are a student and you test positive and must isolate, after reporting your test result, work with your faculty regarding your coursework. 
  • If you are a close contact, you may attend class/come to work but you are expected to wear a medical grade mask when around others for 10 days. If you are not up to date on vaccines, you are permitted to quarantine in place and attend class/work for the next five days wearing a medical grade mask, but you should stop other activities until then. If your vaccinations are up to date, you may engage in other activities, but wear a medical grade mask.
  • With the omicron variant, COVID-19 symptoms have changed and are generally milder. Instead of chest pain and shortness of breath, the most common symptoms currently are similar to colds and the flu. If you have any of these symptoms, you should assume you have COVID and stop going to class/work and test immediately. If your test is negative, you may return to class/work. If your symptoms persist, you should retest in 1-2 days. If your symptoms worsen, you should call the Health Center or your primary care provider.
  • Refer to the University's protocols for isolation and quarantine for specific instructions. 

The good news is that our health center is reporting that the vast majority of individuals they are seeing with COVID are experiencing mild to moderate symptoms. The revised quarantine protocols mean that close contacts may continue to go to class. And the medical grade masks are highly effective in protecting against COVID and its spread. 

We are all tired of the pandemic and its restrictions. But with this highly transmissible variant of the virus, it remains critically important that we wear the medical grade masks faithfully when we are around others and follow the safety protocols to protect ourselves and our campus community. 

Sincerely, 
The Path Forward Team


Dear faculty, staff and student-employees,

Because of federal regulations, the University is again requiring employees, including student employees, to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Students who are not University employees are not affected by this requirement but are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated and boosted. The deadline for vaccination is now Feb. 9. 

Importantly, federal regulations require that beginning Feb. 9, 2022, any employee who is not vaccinated — even if exempted from the vaccination requirement — will be required to undergo and report weekly COVID-19 testing. Employees will be responsible for securing their own proctored COVID-19 tests (e.g., administered by a medical professional or, if self-administered, read/overseen by a telehealth proctor) and providing the results to their supervisor (or supervisor’s designee). More details are in the University’s OSHA-Compliance Employee Vaccination or Testing Requirement protocol and we will have more information for employees at a later date. 

Employees who did not previously submit proof of their vaccination can do so here. As before, employees can request a medical or religious exemption from this requirement.  

Employees excluded from the vaccination and testing requirements are those who do not report to a workplace where other individuals (such as coworkers or customers) are present; employees working 100% from home; and employees who work exclusively outdoors.

These new requirements are due to activity in the courts that now requires the University to comply with a federal rule issued by the Occupational Health & Safety Administration (OSHA) that obligates large employers, among other things, to require weekly testing of their unvaccinated employees. The Supreme Court of the United States held oral argument on the validity of that OSHA rule on Friday, Jan. 7.

As has been the case throughout the pandemic, our protocols and requirements are subject to change depending on conditions on campus or in our community, applicable government rules and regulations, and court decisions.

Dear faculty, staff and students,

In consultation with our medical advisory panel and public health officials, the University has updated our COVID-19 protocols for the spring 2022 semester to align with new CDC guidance and address considerations related to the omicron variant.

  • Isolation for confirmed positive cases: The University will follow the most recent CDC guidelines for isolation. Students who test positive for COVID-19 should stop going to class and are expected to isolate at their permanent residence if that residence is within 200 miles of campus; students from farther away should isolate in-place. Employees should not go to work in person; isolate at home and work remotely if able. Avoid going out for food; please have others pick up/make food for you or order delivery to leave outside your door. Employees and students should report all positive tests through UD's reporting portal; a contact tracer will work with you to determine when your isolation period may end. More information can be found here.
  • Quarantine for close contacts: Employees and students should report their close contact status through UD's reporting portal. Students are permitted to go to class, but outside of the classroom, must quarantine in place for five days; wear a KN95 or Fluidshield Level 3 medical mask; and do not attend social gatherings. Students can get grab-and-go food from the dining halls or have others pick up/make food for you or order delivery to leave outside your door. Employees should work remotely if able. Anyone who cannot work remotely may return to work if asymptomatic AND if they have a negative test result within 48 hours of learning known exposure. However, it is very important to wear a KN95 or Fluidshield Level 3 medical mask, which the University will provide to you. A UD contact tracer will work with close contacts to determine when their quarantine periods may end. This approach aligns with the state of Ohio's guidance. More information can be found here.
  • COVID-19 student agreement: The COVID-19 student agreement has been updated to include additional options for isolation and quarantine and to note that, as University employees, student-employees may be subject to additional COVID-related protocols. Click here to access the updated agreement.

Please note the University's protocols and requirements are subject to change depending on conditions on campus and in the community, and on CDC and government guidance and requirements.

Our classroom safety protocols – including masking of students and instructors, and high vaccination rates – proved successful in helping to curb cases during the fall semester. Given current conditions and the effectiveness of vaccines/boosters in mitigating serious illness from the currently dominant variant, we believe the University is well-positioned to sustain face-to-face learning through spring semester. But in order to maintain in-person classes, everyone must do their part to help curb the spread.

The Path Forward Team


Dear faculty, staff and students:  

As we return to campus after what we hope was a restful and restorative break for all, we want to update you on the University's initial approach to COVID-19 for the spring semester.  

The University of Dayton will start the spring semester in-person on Jan. 10 as previously planned. Based on guidance from our medical advisory panel and public health officials, we will adjust certain requirements and protocols to address current conditions associated with the omicron variant and likely continued impact of the delta variant.  

This approach is based on the specific UD context and our knowledge about how remote learning, especially at the start of the semester, can create significant, long-term academic and life challenges for many students. Nearly two years of this pandemic have demonstrated clearly that in-person learning is crucial to both student well-being and academic success at the University of Dayton. 

Our classroom safety protocols, including masking of both students and instructors, and high vaccination rates proved successful in helping to curb cases during the fall semester. Given current conditions and the effectiveness of vaccines/boosters in mitigating serious illness from the currently dominant variant, we believe the University is well-positioned to sustain face-to-face learning through spring semester. But in order to maintain in-person classes, everyone must do their part to help curb the spread. 

Key elements of our initial approach to the pandemic for spring semester include:  

  • The best protection against more severe illness is to be fully vaccinated and to have received a Pfizer or Moderna booster shot. Find vaccines here, and report your vaccination or booster at UD’s confidential links to help us track the level of immunity in the UD community. With wide availability in many locations, UD strongly encourages students, faculty and staff to receive their boosters before returning to campus.  
  • On-campus events can continue at the present time, but attendees must wear face coverings throughout the event. No food or drink will be permitted at on-campus events. Some events may be modified or rescheduled for later in the semester.
  • Temporary remote work may be appropriate for some work functions. With supervisor approval, some employees may choose to work remotely for the next few weeks if their work function does not require their presence on campus (for instance, is not student-facing), and their work can be performed remotely. We will defer accepting requests for long-term arrangements under the new Remote Work and Flexible Work Schedule policy, announced to campus on Dec. 20, and hope to launch that process in February. Employees planning to request long-term remote work under the new policy should continue to discuss their options with their supervisors. Due to the small confines of many faculty offices, faculty members may choose to hold office hours remotely until further notice. 
  • Face covering/mask protocols remain in place. Wear face coverings properly (over your nose and mouth). The University will have a supply of medical grade masks for faculty, staff and students who would like to use them. Face coverings are required indoors, including in academic, classroom, studio, lab and related spaces (including hallways and Roesch Library). They also are required in Kennedy Union, The Hub at the Arcade, the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception, all dining facilities (except when actively eating or drinking), RecPlex public areas (except when actively engaged in exercising), and UD transportation (shuttles, etc). We also strongly encourage everyone, whether vaccinated or not, to wear a face covering in shared residential areas on campus such as common areas, lobbies, etc. Read the University's complete guidance on face coverings here.
  • Maintain a physical distance of six feet or more from individuals outside your household, when possible.
  • Students are reminded that they still must comply with the provisions and requirements of the COVID-19 Student Agreement.

More detailed guidance on some of these expectations and processes will be forthcoming. The University's protocols and requirements are subject to change depending on conditions on campus and in the community, and on CDC and government guidance and requirements. 

As has been the case throughout the pandemic, conditions and requirements can change rapidly. Please pay attention to your email, to campus and student news digests, and Porches for more information and the latest updates.  

Wishing you safe travels and a successful beginning to the spring semester,  

The Path Forward Team


Dear faculty, staff and students;

The Path Forward team continues to work with our medical advisory panel to manage the impact of the COVID-19 delta variant and assess how the omicron variant could affect our community.

Although we have a high level of vaccination in our campus community and have not seen increases in cases that other campuses have recently seen nationwide, we still need to remain vigilant and continue to take steps to guard against COVID-19.

We hope you have a safe, healthy holiday season and semester break, and we strongly encourage you to consider these steps intended to prevent COVID-19 from causing significant disruption when students return for the spring semester as planned on Jan 10.

The Path Forward team will meet during the holiday break to assess developments in the pandemic. If the University decides to make changes to its COVID-19 protocols or operations, we will communicate those directly to our community via email in a timely manner. Please make sure you're paying attention to your email during break.

As has been the case during the pandemic, our protocols and requirements are subject to change depending on conditions on campus or in our community, and CDC and government guidance and requirements. 

Wishing you a safe and healthy holiday and semester break,
The Path Forward Team


Dear faculty, staff and students,

The University of Dayton will continue to encourage all employees and students to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 but, due to a federal court ruling, will pause efforts to require employees to be vaccinated or exempted for medical or religious reasons. 

A federal court on Nov. 30 issued a ruling that suspends the requirement that applies to federal contractors in Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee. With this development, the University will pause any enforcement action against employees, including student employees, who work in these states and who have not complied with the requirement to be fully vaccinated by Dec. 8 or to have requested an exemption to maintain their employment status. 

We want to thank all of our students, faculty and staff who have complied already. Through your efforts and the federal vaccination mandate, we have achieved a high vaccination rate. This has helped reduce the spread of the virus on campus and allowed for in-person education and research to continue throughout the semester without major disruption. 

The requirement has been effective in boosting the already-high vaccination rate on campus. As of Dec. 1, 96% of all UD employees had complied with the federal contractor mandate to be fully vaccinated or exempted. 

The University will continue to monitor the state of the pandemic on campus and in the community as well as developments in federal and state requirements, and also will continue to regularly consult with public health officials and our medical panel. As has been the case throughout the pandemic, our protocols and requirements are subject to change depending on conditions on campus or in our community, and government requirements. 

Thank you again to all of those who have been vaccinated and continue to mask up -- you are making a difference! 

The Path Forward Team


Dear faculty, staff and student-employees;

For the University to comply with federal executive order 14042, Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors and related guidelines, all University of Dayton employees, including student employees, must submit a record of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by 11:59 p.m. ET Dec. 8 or submit an exemption by 11:59 p.m. ET Nov. 24 to maintain their employment status. To be fully vaccinated, you must receive the last dose of a two-dose shot by Nov. 24.

The University has long been a federal contractor, conducting important research, supporting undergraduate and graduate students, and advancing the local economy. Based on these contracts, the University campus is considered a federal contractor workplace and, therefore, the entire employee base is subject to the terms of the executive order.

Important information on vaccinations and exemptions

  • The University has scheduled clinics for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination (by appointment) and flu vaccination (walk-in) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21, in Curran Place's Marshall Room and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29, in Kennedy Union East Ballroom. For more information, click here. You also can find vaccinations at several off-campus locations here
  • When you do receive your final COVID-19 vaccination, report it here
  • To request a religious or medical exemption, click here to complete the form.
  • The University will individually contact employees who have not submitted a record of vaccination or an exemption to notify them of this new requirement and detail the steps that must be taken. The link to make an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination will be provided in that email.

Our vaccination incentive program during the summer resulted in nearly three-quarters of our community being vaccinated, and our current COVID-19 protocols have resulted in low and decreasing incidence of the virus on campus. Our approach is indeed working, and we thank everyone for their continued efforts to protect our community against COVID-19. However, as a federal contractor and responsible citizen, the University must comply with the federal requirements. As stated in the executive order, "These safeguards will decrease the spread of COVID-19, which will decrease worker absence, reduce labor costs, and improve the efficiency of contractors and subcontractors at sites where they are performing work for the Federal Government."

The University will continue to monitor federal and state requirements and the state of the pandemic on campus, as well as regularly consult with Public Health and our medical panel. We also will actively monitor whether the new vaccination requirement for employees, subject to lawful exemptions, results in a significant increase in the number of vaccinated employees. As has been the case throughout the pandemic, our protocols and requirements are subject to change depending on conditions on campus or in our community.

The Path Forward Team


Dear faculty, staff and students: 

With COVID-19 cases surging across the nation and stricter new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about face coverings, the Path Forward team offers this urgent update for the campus community about the state of the pandemic and changes to our protocols.

The more contagious delta variant is causing pandemic conditions to change rapidly. While vaccination has proven safe and largely effective in preventing serious illness, hospitalization and death, medical science is discovering that fully immunized people as well as unvaccinated individuals can transmit the virus to others. 

Our current approach is intentionally a balance of two imperatives: help protect physical health and support the mental, social and emotional health of our students. We learned much last year about the effect of some protocols on some students — especially first-year students — to acclimate to the University, build relationships and maintain good social and emotional health. 

Based on these changing conditions, and after consultation with our medical advisory panel and public health officials, everyone, whether vaccinated or not, is required to wear face coverings in most shared indoor spaces on campus effective immediately.

  • Face coverings are required in academic, classroom, studio, lab and related spaces, and all dining facilities when not actively eating or drinking. 
  • You do not need a face covering if you are alone in a non-shared workspace, such as a private office or cubicle with sides extending above your head on at least three sides.
  • We strongly encourage everyone, whether vaccinated or not, to wear a face covering in shared residential areas on campus such as common areas, lobbies, etc.
  • You can read the University's updated guidance on face coverings here. 

In addition to wearing face coverings in these indoor settings, please also do the following to help protect yourself and others on campus and in the community:

  • DO NOT come to work or class if you are not feeling well or have COVID-19 symptoms. If you are not feeling well, it's important to determine as quickly as possible whether you have COVID-19 and notify the University’s health reporting team so contact tracing can begin. Contact tracing helps stem the spread of the virus to others. 
  • Use UD's online health reporting form to disclose if you have tested positive, or have been a close contact of someone with COVID-19. These measures are designed to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. 
  • Unvaccinated people are at the greatest risk for serious illness, hospitalization and death, especially as face covering and physical distancing expectations have eased in many communities. Increasing the total vaccination rate is essential for combatting the virus. In Ohio, you can schedule an appointment for the vaccine at hundreds of locations through the state's streamlined vaccine tool, or book directly with a local provider, such as Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County or Premier Health. New appointments are posted regularly. For other areas of the country, the CDC has a vaccine finder along with other information on COVID-19 vaccines. 
  • UD will offer a vaccine clinic for students and employees in late August; watch your email and news digests for information. 
  • If you are not vaccinated, we strongly encourage you to schedule your appointment so you are fully vaccinated before fall semester begins. When you receive your vaccine (even if you've only had one dose of a two-dose vaccine), please upload your record to UD's confidential portal so we may better monitor conditions on campus. 

At the current time, we are planning for normal capacity, without physical distance restrictions, for dining, classrooms, events, gatherings and meetings. Guests will be permitted on campus and in student residences, provided they follow our protocols for face coverings.

We have re-instituted the vaccine dashboard, showing the level of vaccination for the campus community. We expect the vaccination rate to fluctuate throughout August and September until enrollment numbers are finalized. The vaccination rate is not the sole factor the University considers when instituting or easing COVID-19 protocols in consultation with our medical advisory panel and Public Health - Dayton and Montgomery County. 

As we near the start of school, please watch your email and weekly digests for communications and updates. Check out our streamlined COVID-19 webpages (dashboard | A-Z index | general FAQ | health resources), for the most updated information on changing conditions and requirements. You can continue to find the most important links at the top of every UD webpage. 

We will continue to carefully monitor pandemic conditions and the latest CDC and public health guidance. As we've stated, protocols may be revised on short notice as conditions change; all options are on the table as we continue to strive for an active and engaged campus environment, with safety as a top priority. 

We are calling on every member of our campus community to take personal responsibility for their own health and wellbeing and to protect our colleagues, classmates and extended UD family. Remember: students, faculty or staff members may return home each day to unvaccinated and vulnerable young children, aged parents or immuno-compromised friends and family. 

Let's use the resources and tools we know are effective — get vaccinated before fall semester, wear face coverings — to help protect ourselves, our campus community and our loved ones. 

Sincerely, 
The Path Forward Team


We did it! Our campus community met the Build Immunity in Our Community Challenge and will be able to ease COVID-19 safety protocols.

While the danger from the virus and its variants continues, the 70% immunization rate we achieved will provide an appreciable level of immunity and should help protect our entire campus community. We will continue to encourage those of you who have not been vaccinated to schedule your vaccine appointments before fall semester so that we optimize our health and safety as a community. While the University is working on organizing vaccination clinics for the campus community when students return in August, each of us can improve our individual immunity if we are fully vaccinated before returning. 

Please remember, if pandemic conditions change, safety protocols for campus may be reinstated at any time on short notice. 

Effective immediately:

  • There is no general mask requirement on campus, except in health care and other specialized settings. Mask wearing continues to be a valuable form of protection for those at higher risk of infection and should continue for people who are not fully vaccinated, especially indoors and in crowded settings. Please support and respect unvaccinated, vulnerable individuals, and others who choose to wear masks.
  • There is no six-feet physical distancing requirement on campus. Classrooms, meeting rooms and dining facilities will return to full capacity. 
  • Meeting, gathering and event protocols on campus are no longer in effect. 
  • Group travel for everyone, vaccinated and unvaccinated, is now possible with certain restrictions and additional risk review (additional details forthcoming). All will be required to follow all regulations governing travel to your destination and, if traveling abroad, your return to the United States; and, if applicable, any organizing or sanctioning body such as the NCAA. 
  • Guests are allowed in student residences.

The following protocols remain:

  • Do not come to work or class if you're experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Contact your primary care physician or the student health center for evaluation and possible testing.
  • Please use UD's online contact form to disclose if you have been a close contact of someone with COVID-19 or have COVID-19
  • Unvaccinated individuals and all who test positive will still be required to quarantine and/or isolate based on the University’s protocols in consultation with its medical advisory panel, e.g., following any travel, if identified as a close contact, if presumed positive, etc.
  • Anyone in quarantine or isolation must coordinate with their supervisor or class instructor regarding time away from work or the classroom. Remote learning is no longer an automatic option for students.
  • Individuals may be subject to surveillance and targeted testing the University, in consultation with its medical panel, determines is appropriate based on the nature of the pandemic on campus, including suspected clusters in specific areas or populations.
  • If you have completed your vaccination (even your first dose of a two-dose vaccine), upload a photo of your vaccine record to UD's confidential portal by scanning it or taking a picture with your phone.

We ask for your patience and understanding as it will take time to remove and update signage around campus and to update webpages with current COVID-19 information. 

Facilities management has been diligently preparing campus facilities for full occupancy. Air filters in HVAC systems are being changed on a regular basis under the preventative maintenance program. Building water systems have been flushed and tested as appropriate to eliminate stagnant water. Alpha and Omega, UD’s custodial contractor, has continued cleaning and disinfecting, including daily cleaning of surface areas in common areas, restrooms, elevators, stairwells and other high touch points. Facilities management will provide more information as the fall term approaches.

We also ask you to be inclusive and respectful of your colleagues and classmates who choose to continue certain practices, such as continuing to wear face coverings, maintaining physical distance, or avoiding handshakes or hugs.

If you have specific questions about returning to campus, employees should consult with their supervisor or email pathforward@udayton.edu, and students should contact their dean's office or email pathforward@udayton.edu.

Congratulations and thank you, Flyers! See you on campus!
