Is Penn State making any formal changes to classroom attendance policy to encourage students who are ill or may have symptoms to avoid class?
The health of the Penn State community is our top priority, and we must all do our part in preventing the possible spread of coronavirus. Faculty are expected to be flexible in their interpretation of class attendance policies. Sick students are expected to stay home and call their health care provider. In-residence courses will be delivered in a flexible format to allow students who miss class due to quarantine or illness to continue to make critical academic progress. Additional information on what to do if you feel sick is available on the Health Guidelines page.
