We have worked closely with the Yakima and Washington State Departments of Health, as well as with our medical sciences faculty, to establish protocols that make it safe to attend classes this fall. The university’s safe opening plan calls for a combination of remote learning, social distancing, masking, health screenings, and sanitation practices to ensure your safety. Almost all classes will also be offered remotely (see below for details), allowing students to attend online synchronously or asynchronously, depending upon their needs. Facemasks are required in all spaces on campus, including outdoors and in the restrooms. Hand sanitizing stations are located in every building on campus. Health screeners will be in place at the entrance of the university parking lot to take the temperature of everyone who enters the property. No one with a temperature above 100 degrees will be allowed access to campus. Classrooms and computer labs are being reconfigured with a reduced capacity to ensure that individuals remain at least 6 feet apart. Each building will have a COVID site supervisor on site to ensure that facemasks are being worn, social distancing protocols are being adhered to, and regularly sanitizing frequently touched surfaces. Classrooms and labs will be thoroughly sanitized between uses. Access to other services, such as advising, tutoring, financial aid, and the library and printing, will occur remotely or through contact-free options.
