SNHU Response To The Coronavirus Outbreak COVID19
Sunday, March 15, 2020
In a press release posted on Southern New Hampshire University’s website on March 11, the non-for-profit online higher education champion made the school's preventive measures public.
At this time, there are no confirmed cases on the SNHU campus or at any of the University’s office locations.
Because of the Coronavirus outbreak, SNHU is suspending all in-person classes and moving instruction online following spring break, beginning Monday, March 16 through Sunday, March 29.
Also due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the University has put a number of preventative measures in place, including:
- Recommending that students and employees avoid traveling to regions with increased risk of exposure, especially to areas with “Level 2” and “Level 3” Travel Health Notices from the CDC.
- Educating the SNHU community about preventative measures, symptoms, and seeking care if symptoms arise.
- Increasing sanitation practices across the University, including disinfecting common areas, posting informative flyers about COVID-19 in SNHU facilities, incorporating more hand sanitation stations across all facilities, and frequently changing trash receptacles.
- Preparing plans to work and study from home, guidelines for self-quarantine, and travel policies.
- Recommending all SNHU students studying abroad to return back to the U.S.
