The health and safety of our campus community is of utmost importance.
Penn State has committed to meeting and exceeding the guidance of health experts for mitigating the spread of COVID-19, and has put into place student requirements and guidelines, including testing, quarantine and isolation, and contact tracing; and University-wide health guidelines for physical distancing, wearing face coverings and practicing hand and cough hygiene.
Every member of our campus community must also do their part to protect others and limit the spread of COVID-19, on and off our campuses. Prior to arrival, you are expected to review campus and local municipality policies and procedures and abide by the clearly outlined expectations and responsibilities of members of the campus community in the COVID-19 Compact.
We are aware of the anxieties and uncertainties members of our community are experiencing and feel it is important that students and families understand there is COVID-19 risk, everywhere in our daily lives, and to reinforce the importance of following these mandatory public health guidelines. We take seriously our collective commitment to community safety. Non-compliance of the expected student behaviors could include sanctions ranging from warnings, to removal of campus housing, to suspension.
