HEALTH ADVISORY: Main Campus Closed - September 21-23; Update on Fall Classes

The University has received notification of a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 at the Main (Northeast Philadelphia) Campus. As outlined in our Return to Campus Plan, we have implemented the appropriate protocols.
 
The Main Campus will be closed effective immediately on Monday, September 21 through Wednesday, September 23 to allow time to enact all appropriate procedures, including contact tracing and disinfecting, which are currently being conducted.
 
During this period, all classes at the Main Campus will continue to be held in an online/synchronous format. Faculty and staff at the Main Campus will work remotely, and all administrative functions will operate on a regular schedule.
 
Classes for the Remainder of the Fall Semester
As a result of acute but ongoing instances of positive cases of virus, the University has made the decision to transition any classes still being held on our Main and Newtown campus locations to online/synchronous courses.
 
Important Note: The Newtown and Main Campus locations will reopen on Thursday, September 24 for faculty and staff members. At that time, the Science Labs and Simulation labs will return to face-to-face sessions, as these must be conducted in person.
 
The Main Campus Library and the Newtown Campus Library Resource Center will reopen for in-person services beginning September 24. Students are welcome to utilize library resources on campus. The Residence Halls and Tiger Cafe will remain open throughout this time for those students who must remain on campus.
