COVID-19 Response and Information
Randolph College is closely monitoring the situation involving the outbreak of respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus COVID-19, as well as influenza and other illnesses that could pose a health threat to our campus and community.
Based on the current expectations of the progress of the COVID-19 pandemic and the information we currently have, Randolph College is planning to resume its on-campus, residential operations in the fall.
The COVID-19 Task Force, which is a subcommittee of our Critical Incident Management Team, has been meeting daily since March. In the past weeks, the task force has turned its attention toward planning for the future in order to ensure that Randolph is as proactive as possible in regards to the impact of COVID-19 on our campus.
The group is working to address the questions about what the living, learning and working arrangements will look like when our community returns in the fall with a focus on public health guidance regarding social distancing and other preventative measures. At the same time, the group is also preparing for multiple scenarios should state or federal guidelines dictate changes in how we operate our campus.
The safety and well-being of our College community remains one of our biggest priorities as we move forward through these uncertain and challenging times.
