The School of Health Sciences initiated a blended learning phase on May 26, 2020. During this phase, students are continuing the majority of their education online, returning to the Francis Center one to two days each week to learn clinical skills.
Students are required to wear masks in the building at all times and will leave the building during the lunch hour. The School of Health Sciences is providing cloth face masks for all students, faculty, and staff.
Students are organized into isolation teams, including the assignment of lab pairs and triplets based on current living arrangements, relationships, and study groups that are already occurring.
Upon arrival to their lab station, students will take their own temperature and complete the daily check-off form. This form will be submitted to the teaching faculty member prior to the start of lab activities. Any student with a temperature over 100 degrees will leave the building immediately and pursue medical attention
The school is using the largest spaces in the Francis Center and re-arranging the anatomy lab to ensure at least 10 feet of social distancing between each isolation pair/triplet.
The Francis Center will remain closed between lab sessions, including evenings and weekends, during the blended phase.
Sanitation procedures will be used by students, faculty, and staff before, during, and after lab sessions in addition to the deep cleaning that will be completed nightly and on the weekends by our partners in the Elon University Physical Plant.
All meetings will continue to be held virtually for students, faculty, and staff until further notice, including advising meetings and individual student meetings with faculty and staff.
