CEDARVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) — Students at Cedarville University are returning to residence halls Sunday and Monday for the start of classes Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 8 a.m.
The decision to bring students back was made after the university updated its COVID-19 protocols for the spring semester.
University officials said that all students will have to get a personal wellness check to make sure that returning students are healthy and free of COVID-19. Any students who have COVID symptoms will start the semester remotely.
The two big changes made for the spring semester are:
- The university’s quarantine protocols have been updated to match the latest from the CDC. Students may be released from quarantine after 7 days with a negative test or after 10 days if they have exhibited no symptoms.
- The university is opening new spaces on campus where additional staff will be able to test for COVID-19 with rapid test kits.
