COVID-19 Research Continuity
As of March 31:
We are in Phase 5, while continuing to adhere to physical distancing, PPE, and testing guidelines. Remote options can continue to support de-densifying areas when possible. Beginning Monday, April 4, Trojan Check will no longer be required to access campus. Although your Trojan Check will not be verified when you access campus, all faculty, staff, and students should continue to check their symptoms whenever coming to campus. Trojan Check will remain available as a helpful tool to complete this. (learn more)
