Salus University Sets Safety Strategy, Ready to Resume On-Campus Operations
Salus University in Elkins Park is ready to resume the majority of its on-campus operations on August 24 following the rules and guidelines set out by the Salus Safety Strategy.
The university will offer lectures using alternative formats each with individual programs. This will give students the opportunity to choose from a variety of different learning styles that include face-to-face, remote, and blended offerings. Laboratory and clinical instructions will still be conducted face-to-face either on-campus in the school’s clinical facilities or at externship sites.
In the meantime, the university is planning to operate its clinical facilities, including The Eye Institute, Pennsylvania Ear Institute, and Speech-Language Institute with reduced patient capacities.
Everybody entering Salus facilities will also have to undergo daily screenings and temperature checks and will be required to wear a mask within the facilities.
Physical distancing will be implemented, while for laboratory and clinical instruction where that is not possible, students and faculty will be provided with personal protective equipment.
The university is also implementing enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures and will limit the size of on-campus events. However, all university-sponsored travel using any means of transportation will remain suspended.
