Taylor University administrators, faculty, staff members, and local healthcare officials continue to monitor the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, and how that spread affects Taylor’s campus and activities.
Spring Break Travel: All Taylor-led scheduled spring break trips have been cancelled. This includes all international trips and all trips within the United States. Affected groups include our spring break ministry teams, men’s and women’s track and field and golf teams, and the Taylor Chorale Civil Rights bus trip.
Taylor is asking all students and employees to follow CDC and State Health Department guidelines for all Spring Break travel. If your home community is responding to COVID-19 through school closures and other community precautions, you can still travel home and return to Taylor University after spring break as long as you have not knowingly come in contact with COVID-19 or developed symptoms such as cough, fever or shortness of breath. TU reserves the right to ask students or employees who have been exposed to COVID-19 or show symptoms to self-isolate off-campus.
Off-Campus Visitors: Taylor will continue to host campus visitors, but we will not be hosting any non-Taylor community member overnight in campus residence halls during the academic year until further notice. The requirement to self-isolate for 14 days applies to all visitors to the TU campus as well, regardless of the purpose or duration of the visit. Visits from Level 2 and 3 countries that have not yet occurred must be canceled or postponed until further notice. Long-term visitors or appointees should be informed of the self-quarantine requirement before they travel to TU.
This is a rapidly developing situation, and we will continue to post further updates about the COVID-19 response.
