Richmont Graduate University’s policies and practices will be aligned with CDC recommendations. This webpage contains information regarding university safety precautions and processes related to COVID-19. Periodic updates may be added or updated as needed to reflect information from the CDC or local public health departments.
Here’s what you need to know:
Richmont currently does not require masks while inside university buildings. (Please be aware that protocols are subject to change as new information comes available or as circumstances change.)
Tables for quick pickup and drop-off of books and printed materials will be outside each main entrance of the library. For students who need extra help, appointments for research consultations with the librarians can be arranged.
Many services and questions can be answered online by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disinfecting wipes will be available in all classrooms and high-touch areas. Students and professors are encouraged to pick up a wipe on the way into classrooms and wipe down their work areas and classroom technology such as wireless microphones, keyboards, and podium touchpads. Hand sanitizer will be conveniently located in all classrooms.
A person that lives in my home has tested positive for COVID-19. What do I do?
Richmont realizes the information surrounding COVID-19 is constantly updating. The university will continue to follow the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and our local public health departments.
Quarantine keeps someone who might have been exposed to the virus away from others. If you have been exposed to COVID-19, please follow the recommendations of the CDC and quarantine for the recommended time. If you need to quarantine, please reach out to your professors and request to attend your classes virtually during the quarantine period. Please plan not to come to campus until your full quarantine period has ended.
Isolation keeps someone who is infected with the virus away from others. If you test positive for COVID-19, please follow the recommendations of the CDC. If you need to isolate, please reach out to your professors and request to attend your classes virtually during your isolation period. Please plan not to come to campus until 10 days after symptom onset, you are fever-free without the use of medication, and other symptoms have improved.
