Campus Safety

Campus Visitor Guidelines

All campus visitors will be required to wear a face covering when inside campus buildings, including Screaming Eagles Arena, as well as when in outdoor spaces where physical distancing is not possible. Visitors will be expected to provide their own face coverings.

Face Coverings

While on the USI campus or University owned and operated facilities, faculty, staff, students, contractors, vendors and visitors are required to wear a face covering when in buildings, including in classrooms. Face coverings must also be worn in open office spaces and outdoor areas where physical distancing is not possible. Face coverings are not required in private offices or when in a space alone.

Physical Distancing

In order to mitigate the risk of spreading COVID-19 to those at higher risk for severe illness, USI is implementing policies designed to create an expectation of physical distancing of at least six feet between people and discouraging large gatherings.

New signage has been added across campus both indoors and outdoors, promoting safe practices, indicating flow of traffic in buildings, and designating where traffic is restricted.
