With national, state and local efforts to return students to classrooms underway, and a nationwide increase in COVID-19 vaccine supply, App State is preparing for the full return to pre-pandemic operations for the fall 2021 semester, with safety precautions in place. The university will continue to make data-driven decisions informed by prevailing national, state and local public health guidance, ordinances and restrictions. We are planning that:
Our top priority in all decisions is the health, safety and well-being of the App State community. As scientific knowledge of the coronavirus continues to evolve, the COVID-19 pandemic changes over time, and government and public health officials issue new orders and guidance, App State will update procedures and plans as needed. The university will follow all state and federal orders, directives of The University of North Carolina System, and will adhere to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local public health in order to ensure the safest possible on-campus environment.
