BACK TO CAMPUS PLAN

Phase IVThis back to campus plan was developed using the best-known practices and guidelines set forth by the White House Opening Up America Again Plan and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). While this plan is based on the most current information available, the phases and other guidelines are subject to change to address emerging conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Phase IV began with the return of all employees to on-campus work Aug. 2, 2021. All locations open with full on-campus operations. Students continue to receive assistance online, but also receive on campus by appointment Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Fridays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Campus bookstores are open. On-campus gatherings limited to 30 persons and facilities rental to persons or organizations outside of Southwest remains prohibited until pandemic conditions improve. Health screenings are no longer required for campus access. Face coverings are required and social distancing is practiced until pandemic conditions improve and in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations.
