COVID-19 Preparedness Plan Update

In June 2020, Rasmussen University released its COVID-19 Preparedness Plan outlining the protocols and precautions the University will follow to provide a safe and healthy learning and working environment during the pandemic.

The Preparedness Plan is a living document that is subject to change as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and the recommendations and guidelines set forth by local, state, and federal health agencies, as well as the mandates set forth by local, state, and federal government agencies.

A summary of the major changes and how they affect campus operations is outlined below. The current version of the COVID-19 Preparedness Plan (“the Plan”) can always be accessed online by clicking here.

Summary of Major Changes:

  • Cleaning and Disinfecting Protocols: Consistent with the updated CDC guidelines released April 5, 2021, faculty and staff will no longer be expected to perform one mid-day cleaning of public areas. However, nightly cleaning services will continue to be conducted by third-party janitorial firms per the terms of their contracts with Rasmussen. Faculty and staff are expected to immediately clean surfaces and objects that are visibly soiled.
  • Disinfecting Protocol after Facility Exposure to Confirmed COVID-19 Case: Consistent with the updated CDC guidelines released April 5, 2021, after a facility exposure to a confirmed COVID-19 case, the campus will be closed until disinfecting of campus facilities can be conducted only if the known exposure incident occurred during the 72 hours prior to the time of notification.
  • All other cleaning and disinfection protocols for classroom, laboratory, and employee offices/work stations remain in effect.

Please direct any questions you may have to your campus’s local COVID-19 Lead.
