As the Spring 2021 semester draws to a close, the University of Nebraska at Omaha Office of Heath Security (OHS) has provided updates and reminders on campus guidance and COVID-19 safety protocols for the upcoming Summer 2021 sessions.
These policies will continue to allow UNO to prioritize the health and wellbeing of students, faculty, and staff, as well as the Omaha community, while minimizing disruption to the on-campus experience.
While many guidelines and policies from Spring 2021 will remain the same, new or updated information for Summer 2021 includes:
- Guidelines for UNO-sponsored and externally-sponsored on- and off-campus events
- Workplace considerations for supervisors and managers
- Study Abroad guidance
UNO Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D., said he is encouraged by the availability of vaccines for individuals age 16 or older and the positive response to vaccine availability by our UNO community.
“It will require all of us to ensure that the gains we’ve made in the last few months are not wasted,” Gold said. “The CDC continues to monitor rising COVID-19 infection rates, especially with new variants of the virus still emerging. Based on current community COVID-19 transmission rates, during the summer UNO will continue to follow public health guidelines.”
Students, faculty, and staff, can help ensure all Mavericks have a safe summer by considering the following guidance as they make their summer plans (keeping in mind that the situation is subject to change based on pandemic-related events and the advice of federal and local health authorities).
- Classes for Summer 2021
- Food at Events and Gatherings
- Masks, Social Distancing and Other Public Health Measures
- Travel for Summer 2021
- Vaccination Information
