Students are required to quarantine from Jan. 15 through Jan. 25. Course content will be available online during this time. In-person instruction will resume on Monday, Jan. 25. For information and updates on the academic calendar, check the academic calendar webpage.
Monday, Jan. 18, is the first day of access to course content. Be sure to complete the Course Requirement Checklist (CRC) for each of your courses at your convenience on that day. No other course engagement will be required for residential classes on that day in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Students are required to wear face coverings in all residence halls and common areas, wash their hands, and maintain 6 feet of social distancing. During the quarantine period, students must refrain from participating in any social gatherings.
New students are welcome to return on Thursday, Jan. 14.
Returning students are to return on Friday, Jan. 15.
There will be no hall events during the quarantine period.
Health Services will continue to provide testing at the triage location in Residential Commons III.
Students who fail to comply with quarantine instructions will be subject to the following:
- A $100 Administrative Fee will be assessed to their student account.
- Students will be denied admittance to their on-campus housing assignment for non-compliance.
- Must submit negative PCR Covid-19 test result 72 hours before returning to campus. Students arriving without a negative test result must be tested at the Student Health Center upon arrival and assigned to the Annex until a negative result has been received.
- Mandatory daily wellness check for 14 days post-arrival.
New restrictions and mandates go into effect at midnight, Sunday, November 15.
- In-person social gatherings are generally limited to 25 people. This does not apply to business or instructional educational settings at Liberty.
- Occupancy at fitness and exercise facilities (including LaHaye Fitness Center) is limited to 75% of the lowest occupancy load. However, the total number of attendees (including both participants and instructors) in all group exercise and fitness classes cannot exceed 75% of the minimum occupancy load or 25 persons, whichever is less.
- Williams Stadium, Vines Center, Tower Theater, LaHaye Ice Center, Montview Bowling Alley, and Snowflex now have an occupancy load of the lesser of 30% of the venue’s load capacity or 250 persons. (This is down from the previous cap of 1,000).
