Processes for Returning to Campus

This post was updated on

PROCESS FOR ACCESSING CAMPUS, including weekly COVID-19 testing

While the process for students, faculty, and staff have differences, each requires both a training module and a COVID-19 test to be completed. Please follow the appropriate process to complete the training and testing.

Current Essential Staff

All current essential staff, meaning anyone who has either not worked remotely at all or those who have returned to campus either full-time or part-time will need to complete weekly COVID-19 testing as outlined in the return-to-campus process for staff. You will not have to submit another approval request or redo the Canvas training.

Faculty

The Office of the Provost and the academic deans have worked to provide faculty access to classrooms and offices in preparation for remote teaching. Faculty will also need to complete weekly COVID-19 testing as outlined in the return-to-campus process for faculty. You will not have to submit another approval request or redo the Canvas training.

Students

To safeguard the health of our entire community, it is important for students to diligently follow our return-to-campus process for Orange Campus and return-to-campus process for Rinker Campus.

Approved Research Personnel

The Office of Research and academic deans have worked to approve certain research activities as outlined in the Research Continuity plan during COVID-19. Any faculty, students and staff who are already approved will need to get weekly COVID-19 testing and participate in the existing COVID-19 daily screening survey prior to coming to campus. Any additional personnel to approved faculty Site Specific Plans should be made using the Limited Campus Access form which will be routed to the appropriate unit approver and the Vice President for Research.

Newly Recalled Staff

For those staff requesting newly recalled staff status for on-campus access, this access is only provided to those performing essential work that cannot be done remotely. The goal is to maintain a low population of employees on campus; therefore, a strict approval process is followed before granting access to campus facilities. To request newly recalled staff status, please follow the return-to-campus process for staff.

One-Time Visits

For anyone requesting one-time access to campus, please follow the published one-time visit process. You must complete all the steps listed, including the COVID-19 test prior to returning to campus, even for a one-time visit, including visits to obtain items from your office. Please note that you will be subscribed to the daily health survey which only needs to be completed on the day(s) you will be on campus.

Observing Campus Guidelines

Whether on our campus, in the residence halls, or in the community nearby, it is of great importance that everyone observes the guidelines and behaviors that will help us slow the spread of COVID-19. Chapman students, faculty, and staff on and off the campuses must make every effort to follow established protocols and processes. Doing so is a fundamental commitment to our collective health and will also help us to remain together at Chapman.
