Coming to CampusStudents should delay their arrival to BYU for winter semester if they have symptoms of illness. Once here, students should self-assess for signs of fever, cough or difficulty breathing before going to class, work or campus each day. BYU students and employees can monitor and report their symptoms using the Healthy Together App. Students who are symptomatic should be seen by a health care professional and self isolate. Students who delay their arrival to campus because of illness or who become sick during winter semester should contact their professors to continue their coursework remotely. International students who have questions about their return to campus may contact International Student and Scholar Services at 801-422-2695.
ClassroomsSignificant efforts have been made to expand teaching spaces across the BYU campus to include areas that haven’t been used as teaching spaces in the past. This has been done to reduce overall class sizes.
Masks: BYU students are required to wear masks in all classroom settings, the library, the Wilkinson Student Center and in these additional places.
Physical Distancing: During in-person instruction, students should not be seated within 6 feet of another individual. Expanded teaching spaces, reduced class sizes, remote instruction, and in some cases alternating in-person attendance should accomplish this. Where it is not possible for students to sit 6 feet apart, instructors must record attendance and seating location to support contact tracing.
Cleaning and Hygiene: Hand sanitizing and cleaning supplies will be made available in each teaching space. Students are expected to clean their seating area before each class begins.
