Requirements - All-Student Quarantine

Dear Students:

Your safety and the safety of our community is my focus. I provide the following as a reminder about resetting our COVID-19 expectations and requirements. These were identified in President Standifird's message today, but I wanted to make sure you understood how absolutely critical they are to us remaining on campus through November.

Requirements, Reporting and Enforcement for All-Student Quarantine Sept. 8 - Sept. 23

All students, faculty and staff must hold one another accountable to follow the requirements set forth by the university to combat the spread of COVID-19 on our campus and within our community.

Requirements

Students, Faculty and Staff

  • Must wear a mask at all times except when in their room, off-campus residence, or office
  • Must maintain a minimum of six-feet of physical distance except when in their room, residence or office
  • Are expected to complete the Daily Symptom Tracker
  • Are expected to participate in Surveillance Testing requests

Students can leave their residences to:

  • Pick up meals from dining facilities or Michel Student Center
  • Spend time outside while masked
  • Run essential errands (such as medical provider visits, pharmacy, grocery store)
  • Attend work off campus and essential on-campus jobs after confirming with employer
  • Engage in off-campus learning experiences with approval of their college dean

Students are allowed to:

  • Order food and groceries and have them delivered
  • Visit on-campus Health Services and Counseling Services

Students are not allowed to:

  • Congregate or gather with anyone other than their roommate or off-campus residence mates
  • Have guests in their room or off-campus residence
  • Visit off-campus eating establishments, drinking establishments or off-campus residences

Reporting

All students, faculty and staff must help in holding each other accountable. Unsafe and/or non-compliant behavior should be reported using this form or by calling (309) 677-2000. Please be prepared to provide specific addresses/locations, names and details. The university will increase monitoring of activity around campus, particularly at night.

Enforcement

Non-compliance is serious as it may jeopardize the health and safety of other members of the Bradley and the Peoria community. Egregious, significantly threatening and/or repeat violations will be prioritized over less serious infractions. Sanctions will take into consideration the impact of the behavior, prior conduct history and willingness to make any necessary changes. Accordingly, sanctions related to non-compliance are not necessarily progressive since the disciplinary action will depend on the conduct.

Sanctions of reported COVID-19 non-compliance may include, but are not limited to:

  • a written notice
  • disciplinary action, which may include warnings, restricted access and/or loss of privileges, loss of on-campus housing
  • censure
  • disciplinary probation
  • suspension
  • dismissal from the university

COVID-19 violations are not eligible for Student Arbitration Board review, but are eligible for appeal to the Vice President for Student Affairs or designee.

I have high expectations and am counting on you. We know you and our community can do this!

Sincerely,

Nathan

Nathan P. Thomas

Vice President

Division of Student Affairs

Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
