COVID-19 Precautions Continue for Winter Term

December 14: Important Information Regarding One-Day Campus Pass Locations

December 14, 2020

Members of the SU Community,

SU continues to offer a one-day campus pass this week that will allow students who are not in compliance with the University’s 30-day COVID-19 testing requirement to be on campus as necessary, and as permitted by their faculty members, for final exams.

Beginning Tuesday, December 15, one-day passes will be available only at the main entrances of Holloway Hall and the Guerrieri Academic Commons (entrance facing Route 13). Passes at these locations will permit students to be present in all academic buildings on campus.

To obtain the pass, students must undergo COVID-19 screening at one of these two locations on the day they need to be on campus. Please see this map for screening locations. The screening will consist of a temperature check, and students will need to display their completed screening on the SU App. A valid Gull Card must be presented to receive the pass, which will expire at midnight each day. Students should allow extra time for this screening before their scheduled exam times.

Per SU’s COVID-19 policies, students using the one-day pass should display it and their Gull Card at all times while on campus. Gull Card access for campus buildings (including residence halls) will remain turned off for those who do not have an SU-administered COVID-19 test on file with Campus Health in the past 30 days, regardless of one-day pass status. All COVID-19 testing dates for finals week are full.

SU is able to offer faculty the option of bringing students to campus for final exams and other activities due to evidence of little to no classroom spread of COVID-19 this semester. Students not in compliance with SU’s 30-day COVID-19 testing requirement will continue to show up as “uncleared” (grey/blue) on faculty rosters and in GullNet, regardless of one-day pass status. Faculty teaching classes with face-to-face or hybrid modalities may allow or deny in-person finals for uncleared students at their discretion. Students who are not cleared to come to campus because they are not in compliance with SU’s COVID-19 testing requirement should reach out to their professors directly.  University students and employees can access their test results and dates via GullNet.

As a reminder, parking enforcement remains in effect. Those coming to campus without a valid 2020-21 parking pass should request a printable temporary one-day parking permit at least 24 hours in advance at https://webapps.salisbury.edu/parking/visitor.
