What is the direction for students returning to off-campus housing? (UPDATED 5/9)

Penn State, in collaboration with the Centre Region of Council of Governments and State College Borough, sent a letter to students on May 7 offering guidance on how to help maintain their health and safety, as well as those around them, as they formulate their move-out plans with the conclusion of the spring semester in accordance with guidance from Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Students are asked to make preparations ahead of time, including coordinating with their property manager and roommates to stagger move-out dates and times; arriving with cleaning supplies and personal protection; continuing to practice social distancing throughout the move-out process; minimizing move-out times; and avoiding social gatherings.
