Marian University Spring 2021 Reopening
COVID-19 Updates and Welcoming You Back
As Marian University prepares for students, faculty, and staff to return for the Spring 2021 semester over the next few weeks, not only will you notice that we are still the same vibrant learning community, but also one that has been spending the past several weeks taking great measures to help ensure that everyone arriving on campus remains safe.
Since March we have closely been monitoring the global COVID-19 pandemic, and campus leadership continues to receive recommendations and take the necessary health and safety precautions suggested by government and public health agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Fond du Lac County Health Department.
As such, see below the complete collection of information, updates, and resources that we developed over the summer to prepare the Marian University community for another great Spring semester.
Marian University Spring 2021 Reopening Guide
The Spring Reopening Task Force and the Incident Response Team worked tirelessly to create the Marian University Spring 2021 Reopening Guide, available to you here.
Daily Screening Tool Checklist
Those coming to campus are reminded of how vital it is for faculty, staff, and student workers to complete the At Home COVID-19 Screening Tool Daily Checklist. To keep each member of the Marian University community safe, and under the guidance of local health department recommendations, we are requiring every employee to review this document before arriving to work. Regardless of your results, please stay home if you have any symptoms associated with COVID-19.
Safe Sabre Guide Book
Once on the Marian University campus, faculty, staff, and student workers are expected to adhere to the Safe Sabre Guide Book. These policies and protocols were created to align with orders and ordinances of the City of Fond du Lac and Fond du Lac County, as well as the State of Wisconsin's Phased Reopening Model.

You no doubt have questions pertaining to how Marian University plans to operate during the Spring 2021 Semester. Please reference these frequently asked questions, which were compiled and answered to help ease any concerns you may have prior to your arrival on campus.
For Faculty and Staff
As the faculty and staff of Marian University return to work for the Spring 2021 semester, several resources and assistance offerings have been created and compiled below that will help ensure everyone is able to experience an ideal return to campus.
Monitoring COVID-19 on campus and in our community
Marian University uses a system of alerts to communicate the level of danger we face as a community from threats to our campus, including COVID-19. These alert levels guide our decisions as we determine when and if we need to take additional measures to protect safety and reduce our operations. Five alert levels mark the degree of risk on our campus. The parameters that make up those levels can be found here.
Student Continuation of Operations Plan (SCOOP)
Faculty, staff, students, and student groups who are planning to host an event or activity on or off-campus are also required to complete this SCOOP form two weeks ahead of the event, or first meeting of a reoccurring event, to send to Pennie Reis, Division for Student Life; Jennifer Farvour, Division for Academic Affairs; Shannon LaLuzerne, Division for Enrollment Management. This will help us determine that activities are being designed to mitigate risk to our community. Vans can be reserved through Michelle Ryan, but to do so the SCOOP form must filled out and approved first. The vans can each carry one driver and three passengers – one per row – and masks must be worn at all times.
