We cannot wait to welcome our students Back to the Vern, and our faculty and staff are hard at work to prepare our campus and centers. This includes reopening our physical campuses and offering a dynamic academic life and the engaging college experience you expect at Alvernia. Our goal is to raise the bar of the full student experience and we think you will notice the difference.

 

We so look forward to getting started with some new realities that COVID-19 brings that will impact how we all interact with each other. Face masks, physical distancing and frequent hand washing have become second nature to us as we all work together to limit exposure and transmission of the virus. For those returning to continue your Alvernia experience, you will notice the differences as we have taken hundreds of actions to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our campuses.

 

Our Franciscan heritage encourages us to be flexible and nimble, which has been an asset given the evolving and uncertain nature of COVID-19. We will continue to let the health, safety and comfort of our students, faculty, staff and neighbors drive our decisions.

 

On this page, you will find the Alvernia Back to Campus 2020 guide, a flexible campus health and safety plan developed by Alvernia’s Pandemic Response Team, that will serve as a guide for interaction by the community. 

 

These recommendations and requirements will be updated as new information about the virus develops and as we continue to monitor and evaluate data and guidance set forth by the Centers for Disease Control, Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Alvernia may add or reduce health and safety measures at any time and adapt them to our Alvernia campus environment, unique in the ways we all learn, live and work together.

 

Alvernia cannot guarantee these safety measures will prevent COVID-19 from occurring on our campus; however, given our current understanding of the transmission of the virus, adherence to these practices can decrease the likelihood of occurrence and enable us to keep the university operations on campus until the Thanksgiving Break.

 

The recommendations and requirements below are structured in an FAQ format. Any questions not covered in this area should be directed via email to the Pandemic Response Team at Campus.Update@alvernia.edufor inclusion in future updates.

 

Check back regularly for the latest information and updates as we all get Back To the Vern!


Community Health and Safety Considerations

How can Alvernia students, faculty and staff participate in keeping the campus safe? 

Alvernia students, faculty, and staff have created a community where we take care of one another. This year will be no different in that respect. The success of returning to campus will be largely dependent on the campus community taking personal actions to protect themselves and others on campus. With that in mind, all Alvernia students, faculty and staff returning to campus are expected to adhere to the following guidelines:

1.) Practice social distancing of at least six feet while on campus and off-campus;

2.) Wear cloth face masks/coverings when inside campus buildings, including classrooms, labs, offices and other public spaces including outdoors when social distancing cannot be maintained as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)and the Pennsylvania Department of Health;

3.) Maintain high sanitation levels including frequently washing hands (for at least 20 seconds), utilizing new and existing hand sanitation stations, avoiding close contact with those who are sick and covering coughs or sneezes with a tissue as directed by the CDC;

4.) Self-monitor daily for COVID-19 symptoms on the #CampusClear app and report symptoms to a medical professional;

5.) Remain home if feeling ill or after having been exposed to someone who is sick or tested positive for COVID-19;

6.) Sanitize high-touch surfaces (desks, tables, doorknobs, etc.) and common spaces by utilizing the newly installed sanitation stations or provided wipes and sprays

7.) And develop creative solutions to avoid in-person meetings by utilizing university technology, including Microsoft Teams and ZOOM.

This information will be summarized in the Alvernia Wellness Pledge that will be available soon. Every member of the Alvernia community will be asked to review the Wellness Pledge and adhere to its guidance throughout the fall semester.

Do we need to wear masks and maintain social distancing when we return to campus?

In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and current Pennsylvania public health guidelines, wearing face masks and adhering to social distancing practices, including maintaining six feet of physical distance from another person, are critical components in helping to support the health and safety of the entire campus community. Students, employees and any approved visitors are required to practice social distancing and wear face masks/coverings in classrooms, labs, offices, dining and retail facilities, public spaces, and while walking and traveling by car with others on Alvernia campuses.

Will masks be provided to the Alvernia community?

The university has purchased 3,000 Alvernia branded masks that will be distributed to the student and employees during the first few days of the fall 2020 semester. 

In addition, the Alvernia has purchased 1,000 non branded cloth masks and 20,000 disposable masks for use by Alvernia students, faculty and staff. 

Will students, faculty and staff be required to take their temperature every day?

As part of ongoing mitigation efforts, all students, faculty and staff will also be asked to complete self-monitoring, which includes a daily self-temperature assessment, on the #CampusClear app. Any concerning symptoms will be addressed by the university's Health and Wellness Center.

The Alvernia Pandemic Response Team may issue requirements for situations where students, employees, and approved visitors must have their temperature checked by an Alvernia representative before participating in an activity or entering a University-owned space. Examples include university-sponsored intercollegiate athletic activities and in certain lab activities. 

Are there penalties for faculty, staff and students who do not follow health guidance related to working, living and being on campus?

All students are expected to follow all guidelines and recommendations established by Alvernia University. Non-compliance will be considered a policy violation and referred to the Office of Community Standards for follow up.

All Alvernia University employees are expected to follow all guidelines and recommendations to support a safe and respectful workplace. Non-compliance will be subject to the employee progressive disciplinary processes as necessary. As a Franciscan community, the university expectation is full cooperation from all faculty and staff members.

Will there be a mandatory quarantine before coming back to campus?

Alvernia requests students, faculty and staff to self-quarantine for 14 days prior to returning to campus if they have exhibited COVID-like symptoms, believe they were exposed to COVID-19, or are traveling from an international location or area with high rates of infection. Individuals should also consult with their health care provider for COVID-19 testing if necessary. This guidance may change in the coming weeks per the requirements of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania COVID-19 Pandemic Plan.

Is there any new health documentation or information that will be required for students, faculty and staff to submit before arriving at campus?

A new COVID-19 Return to Campus form must be completed by students returning to campus in August. That form will be delivered to students only on the student health portal in August.

In addition, a Flu Vaccination requirement has been added this year for residential students and student-athletes. Residential students and student-athletes must have a current 2020-21 seasonal flu shot on file by Oct. 15 by uploading proof to the student health portal. Flu shot clinics will be available on campus through a local pharmacy and the Health and Wellness Center during move in and the first week of classes.

As part of ongoing mitigation efforts, all students, faculty and staff will also be asked to complete self-monitoring and temperature assessment daily, using the #CampusClear app. Any concerning symptoms will be addressed by the university's Health and Wellness Center.

Is Alvernia testing for COVID-19?

Alvernia has secured on-campus testing capabilities and is also partnering with local hospitals to test students and employees for COVID-19, as indicated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Pennsylvania Department of Health guidelines.

At this time, Alvernia is exploring options for testing students prior to the start of the Fall semester. However, the university is highly emphasizing daily symptom monitoring and recording on the #CampusClear app, proper mask usage, social distancing protocols and increased sanitation procedures as the primary mitigation tactics.

What will happen if/when a student, faculty or staff member tests positive for COVID-19?

If there is a confirmed case on campus, the Pennsylvania Department of Health will be notified. The Department of Health, together with the University and county resources, will begin contact tracing to determine others at risk of exposure. 

For the vast majority of the Alvernia population, home isolation is the recommended option. For those who can't return home, an isolation strategy will be put in place utilizing campus facilities. At this point, Alvernia has reserved 5% of available residential rooms for use in the isolation strategy. Students should review the Isolation Ready Kit Fact Sheet now to prepare themselves for a potential isolation situation.

Employees will work with their supervisor to determine if sick time or remote work is appropriate while in isolation. The employee can return to work in person once cleared to return by medical provider or has met the CDC standard for return to work.

As testing is a rapidly changing situation in Pennsylvania and across the nation, this plan may be adjusted by new CDC or Department of Health recommendations. In the coming weeks, the university expects to have further guidance for the community.

What parterships/protocols are in place with local health departments and hospitals if positive cases start to emerge?

Alvernia's Reading campus is partnering with two local hospitals, Penn State Health St. Joseph and Tower Health Reading Hospital, as well as the Southeast District office of the Pennsylvania Department of Health to assist in providing care, follow up and case management as needed. The university has also developed partnerships with the Montgomery County Bureau of the Department of Health (Philadelphia) and the Schuylkill County Health Center (Schuylkill) for students at the Philadelphia and Schuylkill campuses. 

Alvernia will continue to develop these partnerships to address needs as they arise.

What if there is a virus flare on campus during the semester? Will Alvernia close campus and return to remote learning?

While a number of factors could lead to Alvernia having to adjust course delivery and campus life during the semester, the university is prepared to take the necessary precautions to keep the campus community safe. The university will work directly with local public health officials to monitor virus infection rates on campus, in Berks County and the Southeastern Pennsylvania region. Alvernia will follow guidance from the commonwealth of Pennsylvania COVID-19 Pandemic Plan and will act accordingly to implement guidelines from the County Status Change (Red/Yellow/Green). 

Contingent upon Pennsylvania Department of Health recommendations and guidance from the governor's office, the university is establishing thresholds that trigger campus decisions to cancel outside community events, on-campus events, and sporting events, or, as a last resort, minimize staffing on campus and move instruction online. More information on these thresholds will be shared in the near future.

Has Alvernia placed any restrictions on travel?

Alvernia has canceled all university-sponsored travel for the fall 2020 semester. 

The university is also following the U.S. Department of State Level 4: Do Not Travel advisory and is advising all domestic students, faculty and staff to avoid international travel. 

What are the protocols for the university to maintain and sanitize all buildings?

In following CDC guidelines, high-touch and high-traffic campus areas will be sanitized daily. These areas will also have hand sanitizer stations, disinfecting wipes and spray disinfectants to be used frequently throughout the day by those individuals overseeing the area. 

Restroom checks will be completed multiple times daily for cleanliness and supply needs. Hand sanitizer stations will be added to all restrooms. 

Sanitizer stations will be added to the entrance of all campus buildings, as well as common areas and high traffic areas.

Sanitizing wipes will be made available in all classrooms, labs, studios, etc. Students, faculty, and staff should wipe desks, keyboards and computer mouse devices before using them. Used wipes should be immediately discarded. Extra or larger trash cans will be placed in areas as needed.

The university had invested in Halo and Curis Disinfection Systems for campus-wide use. 

Can you describe the measures Alvernia is taking with local communities to prevent the spread of the virus?

Education and social responsibility are at the forefront of Alvernia's COVID-19 mitigation tactics. The university will continue to educate its students, faculty and staff on the importance of enacting and maintaining proper health guidelines as described by the CDC and as outlined by the Pennsylvania Governor's office. Alvernia has and will continue to engage in collaborative efforts with various members of the local community (businesses, government officials, internship locations) to ensure these guidelines are being followed throughout the fall semester.

What should I do if I am struggling with the transition back to campus or someone I know seems to be in distress?

Students should ask for help and utilize resources on campus including the Health and Wellness Center. Students can contact the Health and Wellness Center at 610-568-1467 to talk to a counselor. Counseling services will be utilizing telehealth when appropriate and in-person visits if necessary.

Employees can utilize the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) during the transition.

 

Academic Considerations

What does the academic calendar look like for the fall semester?

Classes for the fall 2020 semester will begin as scheduled on Aug. 31, campus-based and in-person instruction for a majority of courses will end Nov. 25, with the remainder of the semester – including final examinations – delivered remotely when classes resume after Thanksgiving break on Nov. 30.

To minimize travel and lower the risk of possibly spreading coronavirus on Alvernia campuses, classes will be held during regularly scheduled fall breaks, including Labor Day and the Feast of St. Francis.

What are you doing to keep us safe in the classrooms and classroom buildings?

1.) Alvernia is de-densifying classrooms, libraries, common areas, offices and spaces throughout the campuses to a maximum of 50% capacity.

2.) All classrooms have been reconfigured to reflect physical distancing of at least 6 feet; that is true also of all public and common spaces – indoors and outdoors. Visual social distancing markers will be installed to encourage students, faculty, and employees to remain six feet apart in workspaces, hallways, and other common use areas.

3.) Outdoor classroom space is being prepared. All spaces will be available to faculty through the reservation system. Chairs and portable whiteboards will be made available for outdoor classroom use.

4.) Faculty in higher health risk categories or situations may teach remotely to address their health vulnerabilities. Arrangements must be made through Human Resources.

5.) Alvernia's facilities team will perform regular intense cleaning of all public spaces to disinfect classrooms, common areas, workspaces and dining areas to minimize transmission. Each classroom will be equipped with hand sanitizers and sanitizing wipes. Students and faculty members are expected to wipe down tables and desks before and after each class. Every utilized university classroom will be cleaned daily. 

6.) Facemasks will be worn in public spaces at all times. Face shields will be worn where it is necessary for students to be able to read instructor's lips, or when there is the need for added protection.

7.) Clear signage will be posted that reinforces policies on social distancing, cleaning and disinfection, personal protection, and personal hygiene including not touching eyes, nose, or mouth, and washing hands frequently.

8.) Ventilation rates and the percent of outdoor air that circulates into the system will be increased, where possible. Air conditioning systems have been cleaned and are fully functioning. Where possible, windows will be opened to increase outside air circulation.

9.) The use of shared equipment will be minimized. If equipment is shared, it will be cleaned after each use.

10.) Office, laboratory, teaching and workspaces have been structured to maintain six feet of distance between faculty, students, and staff, without any opposite-facing arrangements. 

11.) As soon as a suspected case of COVID-19 surfaces, Alvernia will institute a contact tracing protocol to identify those with whom the potentially sick individual came in close contact. In order to accomplish this, attendance will be taken in all classes and seating will be assigned. Exposed individuals will be separated from the rest of the student body, housed in the quarantine quarters, and tested according to guidelines.

Extended guidelines for expected classroom behaviors and classroom cleaning procedures will be available soon.

What options are available for immunocompromised or at-risk students who are unable to be on campus this fall?

With the health and safety of the entire campus community at the forefront of decision making, the university understands not all students will be able to return to campus with ongoing pandemic conditions. Alvernia has heard the concerns of students and parents and is committed to finding suitable educational experiences for students on a case-by-case basis. If you are concerned about returning to campus, please email Provost@alvernia.edu

Are there any restrictions for internship or clinical sites for the fall 2020 semester?

Departments requiring community-based placements (i.e. nursing clinical, student teaching, internships) will ensure that sites adhere to safety, health and social distancing protocols and that students receive appropriate orientation and training before placement.

What if we need to move online again?

All programs should be prepared to ramp down or shut down immediately if instructed to do so. Where possible, courses at Alvernia will continue through the use of virtual modalities. This will allow the university to pivot immediately to online instruction should public health and safety require the cessation or suspension of on-ground instruction.

What is the expectation for returning in person for the spring semester?

With the ongoing pandemic conditions and as local, state, national and international public health situation remains fluid, Alvernia will continue to monitor the latest guidance for shaping a plan for the spring 2021 semester, as it has for the fall 2020 semester. 

 

Student Life Considerations

What will student housing look like this semester?

Alvernia looks forward to student residency during the fall semester and is making the appropriate adjustments to make this happen. This includes an effort to decrease the overall density of students in residence halls by eliminating triple rooms and allowing no more than two students to occupy any residence hall room. This proactive step is being implemented to reduce the number of contacts students have in the residence halls. Below are some additional considerations for resident students:

1.) This reduction in density may require the university to find additional housing space for the fall semester. Alvernia is exploring partnerships with hotels in Reading, which may serve as student housing this fall. Some returning students may be assigned to hotel spaces, which will offer double or single occupancy with a private restroom. The Office of Residence Life will contact students directly if their residential assignment is impacted.

2.) Residence Life will utilize the residential building structure to promote supportive student living units. A living unit may be a suite, an apartment, a pod, a townhouse or a wing of students under the purview of the resident assistant – their "Wolf family" – responsible for each living unit member's emotional wellbeing, physical health and social support. Most residence halls are physically designed by hallways and layouts to create such areas.

3.) Enforcement of physical distancing in the residential community will require new guidelines or revision to current policies. These will include but are not limited to: 

3a.) Students wearing masks in common area spaces, including restrooms, laundry rooms, elevators and hallways. 

3b.) If conditions warrant, Alvernia may need to close/lock building lounges and common areas. 

3c.) Signage in common areas and laundry rooms will be posted related to possible occupancy limits. 

3d.) The visitation policy has been amended to not allow visitors in student rooms at any time, except for move in. During move-in, two move-in assistants will be permitted. Once move-in concludes, no visitors (members of the Alvernia community or the public) will be permitted in the residence halls. 

3e.) The room change policy has amended not to allow room changes.

3f.) Residence Life programming and certain protocols (ex: roommate mediations) will be redesigned to comply with physical distancing guidelines and other established policies.

4.) Facilities staff will enhance cleaning and disinfection in halls and across campus, including high touch areas in the residence halls. Shared common spaces (bathrooms, lounges, hallways, elevators, etc.) in all halls will be cleaned extensively seven days a week.

5.) Resident students must commit to high standards of personal behavior and hygiene in order to protect themselves and others. Residence Life Staff will be utilizing already-existing room, apartment, townhouse, house, and community agreement processes to emphasize guidelines related to COVID-19. These agreements will differ based on the type of housing, as guidelines for each living space may be slightly different based on each physical space. Residents living in traditional halls, apartments/suites, and townhouses will engage with these agreements as a means of demonstrating their understanding of the guidelines and their commitment to supporting the health and safety of the Alvernia community. Agreements will emphasize guidelines related to health and safety standards, cleaning practices, food sharing, and honest and effective communication when concerns arise.

6.) We will follow a modified residential move-in process. Further details will be sent to resident students in the near future.

What is Alvernia doing regarding residential dining options?

Alvernia University's Dining Services has a comprehensive plan to minimize exposure risk at its several dining locations on campus. Highlights of that plan are listed below:

1.) Indoor dining at Courtside Café and Student Center will be limited to 75% occupancy.

2.) Increased outdoor seating will be available during the fall semester. Tents with picnic tables will also be available. In inclement weather, once dining capacity is reached indoors, the Alvernia community will be offered to-go meals to take and enjoy in other parts of campus.

3.) The Student Center Dining Hall will run as a served or grab-and-go option (patrons will not be able to serve themselves). The newly expanded hours of operation will remain the same for all resident and retail locations. 

4.) Meal exchange encourages patrons to utilize all dining locations during the week in order to decrease the number of patrons in a dining location during any given time frame. Meal exchange will be available at Freshens and Courtside Café from 11am-7pm Monday to Friday.

5.) Green plastic, re-washable, to-go containers will be given to all students on a meal plan and can be utilized at any location to take a meal to-go at any time. Students can return their used containers when they visit the dining options and are given a clean, sanitized container for their next meal.

6.) Social distancing measures will be enforced at all food service locations with guidance from floor signs and physical barriers to control flow of traffic.

7.) Dining services has committed to a heightened sanitation and PPE regime that include: sanitation examinations every 30 minutes, face masks and gloves worn by all staff, staff temperature checks before each shift, high-temperature dishwashing machine and extended sneeze guards. 

8.) Prior to the return to campus, the local health inspector will visit Alvernia dining to ensure all best practices and safety protocols are strictly enforced and followed.

9.) For additional info on dining please refer to the updated dining website for menus, hours and contact information. 

 

Will there be intercollegiate athletics during the fall 2020 semester?

The Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Presidents announced on July 24, 2020, the suspension of intercollegiate athletics competition for the fall semester for all 18 member schools.

For more information, please review the Alvernia Athletic release.

Will there be student activities, university-sponsored events, clubs, etc.?

To minimize the exposure risk to the Alvernia and greater Reading communities, residential students will be expected to limit off-campus trips and stay on campus as much as possible. With this being the case, co-curricular activities become an even more vital part of the Alvernia experience. An increased blend of virtual and social distance friendly programming will keep students immersed in campus culture, entertained and engaged with their fellow students as well as faculty and staff.

Below are some initial guidelines for student activities:

1.) Registered student organizations are expected to adhere to the proper social distancing guidelines and encouraged to meet virtually where appropriate. 

2.) If an activity occurs locally, off-campus (i.e. late night bowling), Alvernia will provide transportation and reserve the entire venue to limit contact between Alvernia students and the public. 

3.) Any student activities trips, outside of the immediate Reading area, will be limited

What kind of student job opportunities will be available during the fall semester?

In order to keep Alvernia students engaged and participating on campus. Alvernia is committed to providing an increase in on-campus student employment during the fall semester. More information on new and expanded student employment opportunities will be available in the near future.

Are outside groups able to utilize campus spaces for public events (conferences, lectures, etc.) while students are on campus?

Requests to utilize campus space by outside groups are being handled on a case-by-case basis. Outside groups may submit their requests by emailing Alvernia Senior Vice President and Chief of Staff, John McCloskey at John.McCloskey@alvernia.edu.

Will the university operate its usual shuttle services?

Campus shuttles shall operate at a reduced capacity. Riders must wear masks while on the shuttles. Students should plan for increased wait times and may need to leave for classes earlier than they have in the past, if using the shuttles. 

How will Alvernia manage crowd sizes during campus sponsored events?

Any sponsored event held indoors will comply with occupancy regulations and check-in will be required to ensure record-keeping for potential contract tracing.

 

Employee Considerations

What will a phased return look like for employees?

Alvernia University remains in a predominantly remote working status in the coming weeks per PA state requirements. Slowly and only under the direction of divisional senior leadership, the university will begin to have some employees return to campus later in July and August. Employees will be working together with various functional areas to determine what is the safe and appropriate speed and order of return to campus using flexible schedules, varying attendance and hosting larger meetings using Zoom and Microsoft Teams.

Will employees be asked to monitor their temperature every day before entering the workplace?

Yes. Prior to a return to campus each day, employees will be asked to complete a daily self-monitor assessment for COVID-19 symptoms on the #CampusClear app before entering campus buildings.

What is the university doing to reconfigure buildings and office spaces?

Signage will be visible throughout campus as a reminder to stay at safe distances within campus buildings. Where necessary, plexiglass shields will be installed, and furniture will be moved to accommodate spacing requirements.

Will masks be provided to all employees?

Alvernia will follow the guidance of the CDC and require employees to wear face coverings on campus to protect their colleagues while near others. Employees should bring or wear a face covering to work daily. An Alvernia branded mask will be provided to employees at the start of the academic term.

Can I continue to work from home if I can accomplish my work remotely? What if I am immunocompromised or part of an at-risk population?

Alvernia will continue to support working remotely for employees who can perform functions effectively off-campus while providing support and service to the university's students. The university has granted reasonable interim accommodations for employees requiring enhanced workplace safety for health reasons.

What if I am feeling ill, who should I notify?

Employees who are not feeling well should not report to work, contact their supervisor and seek appropriate medical care.

What if I am asked to quarantine if exposed to a co-worker who is sick? Will I be paid if I cannot perform my job remotely?

Alvernia will work with employees on a case-by-case basis. 

Per the revisions to the academic calendar, will employees be compensated for Labor Day and Feast of Saint Francis?

For this year Alvernia will treat Labor Day and Feast of St. Francis like the President's Day holiday by adding a vacation day to each employee's bank. So, for Labor Day the vacation day would be added Sept. 7 and Feast of St Francis would be added on Oct. 2. Employees can use a vacation day if they receive approval for time off on either day. Or this time can be used at the employees' request with manager approval. Time needs to be used prior to Dec. 31, 2020.

 

Staying Informed

How will students, parents and community members learn about university updates regarding COVID-19?

All relevant information, including updates, FAQs and further resources will remain available on this page as well as Alvernia.edu/Health-Alerts. The university recommends bookmarking both webpages and revisiting them often. 

The university will continue to provide updates via the university's email system. For those who do not have a university email address, or don't check it often, it is recommended to register for university updates here.

The university will share information via its social media outlets, including Facebook, Twitter andInstagram.

The Provost is holding weekly Town Hall meetings for faculty.

For any emergency communication, Alvernia will utilize the Omnilert email and text message system. You can register for that system here.

How will the community be notified of positive cases on campus?

In compliance with the Clery Act, Alvernia will alert the campus community, via email, if a student or employee on campus self-reports a positive case of COVID-19 to the university. Those deemed to be in close contact will be notified as per the guidelines from the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Confidential exposure information will be provided in consultation with health officials and in compliance with FERPA and HIPAA guidelines. Alvernia will maintain the confidentiality of the student or employee as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, as applicable.

What if I am a media member who is seeking information or I am an Alvernia student or employee and receive a request for information from a media member?

It is expected that media members will want to keep informed on campus happenings during the fall semester.

Media members should contact the University Communications office at news@alvernia.edu.
