Rocket Prevention Principles

UToledo is taking a number of steps to ensure we are providing a safe campus environment for our employees, students and guests.

  • Monitoring for symptoms. Before coming to campus each day, employees and students need to take their temperature and complete a self-assessment for symptoms of COVID-19, such as cough, chills, fatigue or shortness of breath. Anyone with a temperature at or above 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit or who is experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should not come to campus and contact their primary care physician.
  • Getting vaccinated. Employees and students are highly encouraged to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Getting as many of our students and employees vaccinated as soon as possible promotes a safe campus environment and increases our ability to return to nearly normal operations.
  • Protecting Others: Guidance on face coverings and social distancing.  Employees and students who are fully vaccinated, meaning two weeks have passed since receiving their final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, are not required to wear a mask while on campus and do not need to physically distance, effective June 2. Individuals who are not fully vaccinated should continue wearing masks while on campus and maintain physical distancing of 3 feet in the classroom and 6 feet elsewhere.
  • Keeping a clean workspace. In addition to enhanced cleaning from Environmental Services, employees and students should regularly clean and sanitize their personal workspaces throughout the day. All individuals must also practice good personal hygiene, including frequent handwashing. 
  • Limiting travel. UToledo is significantly limiting University-sponsored travel to only the most essential trips. All travel must be pre-approved by the college dean or department associate vice president.
