UR Ready: COVID-19 Preparedness

It's up to all of us

As the University of Redlands prepares for a return to some residence life on the main Redlands campus, in-person and hybrid classes on all of our campuses, and a return to onsite work for many employees, each one of us—including students, faculty, and staff—plays a critical role in maintaining campus health and safety.

This website provides some guidelines for the U of R community and its visitors. A more extensive description of the University's COVID-19 safety procedures and protocols will be available in the back-to-campus plan, which will be available soon.

Ongoing response

The University continues to monitor and respond to the ever-changing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and working closely with local agencies such as the County of San Bernardino and Marin County departments of public health.

University-wide committees meet weekly to review the latest developments and shape the University's response, with the goal of prioritizing health and safety while fulfilling the University's mission to provide an engaging, personalized education. 

Safety pillars

  • Use of face coverings when in the presence of others, or when in any common/public space used by others
  • Physical distancing of no less than six feet whenever possible to minimize close contact with other people
  • Frequent washing of hands with soap and water, and the regular use of hand sanitizer
  • Increased routine cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces
  • Isolation of those who are diagnosed with COVID-19 and quarantine for those at risk due to exposure
  • Limiting non-essential visitors to campus
  • Temperature checks to help those who are sick know to report their symptoms and stay away from others
