COVID-19 Preparedness Plan Update
In June 2020, Rasmussen University released its COVID-19 Preparedness Plan (“the 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 can always be accessed online by clicking here.
- Added guest instructors (speakers) to those permitted on campus.
Social Distancing & Masking
- Masking is currently in place at the majority of campuses related to local transmission rates. While masking will resume at all locations with this update, social distancing has been eased to resume normal class sizes and normal personal distances.
Cleaning & Disinfecting
- When notified within 24 hours of a positive case at a Rasmussen University campus or office, the location will close until 24 hours have passed since the positive case was last on site. If the location must reopen in less than 24 hours (previously 72 hours) since the positive case was last on site, then an enhanced cleaning will be completed first.
Please direct any questions you may have to your campus’s local COVID-19 lead.
