With the health and safety of the campus and our surrounding communities at the forefront, UMBC’s plan to gradually re-open the campus is grounded in the best scientific information available about the COVID-19 pandemic and necessary public health precautions. Protocols for transmission prevention, symptom monitoring, and management of the inevitable COVID-19 cases that will occur in any public environment are prerequisites to implementing any level of fall return to the campus.
This section of our Retrievers Return site shares various actions that UMBC is taking to help protect community members, with an emphasis on measures being applied on the physical campus. It is NOT intended to provide medical advice.
