Classroom Setup and Course Delivery
For Fall 2021, Salem classrooms and other campus spaces will operate with reduced physical distancing requirements and higher occupancy limits than previously available during the pandemic. Room-specific plans will be displayed for each classroom and instructional space to show capacity restrictions and space configurations that promote physical distancing to the extent possible while allowing for a traditional in-person learning experience. Attendance for all classes will be limited to enrolled students, faculty, and pre-approved guest speakers.
Students and faculty must follow the applicable Face Covering requirements. In science labs where equipment is shared and spacing configurations are limited, Salem will provide students and faculty with face shields to be worn in addition to their face coverings.
Education buildings will be equipped with sanitation stations, providing supplies for faculty and students to wipe down classroom surfaces and shared equipment before and after use.
You may review the list of courses offered this fall semester, noting whether the course is scheduled to be in-person or online. The delivery method of a section may change, depending on enrollment, until the semester begins. Students should check their Self-Service accounts for additional information.
When students or faculty are not able to attend class in person due to illness, quarantine, or isolation orders, their instructors will provide instructions on how to access course content, or will make alternate assignments. In this situation, students and faculty should report COVID-19 symptoms, exposure, and/or illness as directed by the COVID-19 Reporting [link to page] process so that appropriate plans can be made.
