Promoting Health on Campus During Covid-19

Colleges are beginning to understand what reopened campuses in the fall should look like to keep students, faculty, and staff safe in the face of Covid-19. But how can they get those groups to follow social distancing rules, personal protective equipment guidelines, and residential living health requirements?

Register now for this virtual event on Wednesday, June 15, as Chronicle journalist Alex Kafka is joined by a panel of campus leaders and public-health experts to review how campuses can safely operate in the midst of a pandemic.

The session will explore key elements to the safety and efficacy of reopening campuses in the fall, including:
– How to communicate and promote a campus culture that will encourage all involved to do the right thing.
– Recommendations for how to structure health services to treat Covid-19 patients promptly, including how to coordinate with campus contact-tracing and quarantine operations and how to effectively separate and serve non-Covid patients while minimizing their risk of exposure to coronavirus.
