Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Mississippi University for Women continues our commitment to a safe and healthy campus environment by promoting health and wellness protocols, personal responsibility, and compassion for others. Each member of the campus community plays a critical role in keeping individuals and the campus safe.

Symptoms & Exposure

Individuals should not attend class or enter public spaces on campus if they are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19. Before attending class or entering public spaces, individuals experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 should be tested. Students and employees may test through a health care provider or through a home self-test kit. Testing services are provided free of charge by the Campus Health Center.

Classroom Wellness

Traditional spaces will be utilized and standard capacity can be expected for face-to-face classes as we work to meet the demand for these courses. Instructors interested in locations that would offer more spacing should work with academic leadership to address those requests. Non-attendance does not relieve the student of the responsibility of completing all course requirements.

All courses must be taught though their published delivery method. Courses may be moved to remote delivery for limited periods of time should it be deemed necessary. Students should be prepared to learn in an online or remote environment if it were to become necessary.

Meetings & Events

Events and meetings are no longer restricted by Covid-19 guidelines. Groups and individuals are permitted to host meetings in-person and should use best judgment in determining meeting modality. Participants are encouraged to take personal responsibility for their space and employ practices that the promote health and wellness of the community.

Mental Health Resources

Student Resources

The MUW Counseling Center is available to provide a wide range of free services to currently enrolled students. Staffed by well-trained mental health professionals, the center can assist through in person and virtual counseling sessions. The MUW Counseling Center is located on the corner of 11th Street and 4th Avenue. Office hours are Monday-Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, and counselors are on-call for nights, weekends, and holidays.

Faculty/Staff Resources

MUW benefits-eligible employees and members of their households are covered under the Humana Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and Work-Life Services Benefit at no cost to the employee. The services provided are available to help you and your household members manage everyday life issues that can affect you at home and work. They offer assistance and counseling in person or by telephone, a variety of resources for health and wellness as well as numerous referral services, and it’s all confidential. Follow the link for Humana’s contact information and to learn more about this benefit:

Travel

Unless traveling to an area with a travel restriction, normal travel procedures apply, and individuals traveling should be aware of the conditions that exist at their destination. Travelers should adhere to international travel guidelines published by the CDC and contact the Campus Health Center if there are questions.

Travel Guidance

Communication

Any health protocols adopted by the University should be considered institutional directives and are not subject to the discretion of individuals or individual units. The campus community is encouraged to check these guidelines regularly as they are subject to change. When changes occur, campus will be made aware through official means of communication.
