Frequently Asked Questions re COVID-19 pandemic

Will I need to be quarantined if I fly?

We have been informed that quarantining for 14 days will not be necessary as there is now wide community spread across the country.

Students, faculty, staff and patients will be required to have symptom screening and temperature checks before being allowed into the school. All students, faculty, staff and patients will be required to wear masks and maintain social distancing at all times when in the building.

Infection control protocols for specific areas of the school are currently under development.

How will we make up lost clinic time?

As soon as we are able to reopen the clinics we will develop a schedule to accommodate any social distancing orders in place at the time. This might include extended clinic hours or working on Saturdays.

What kind of PPE will be required?

PPE requirements will be based on the recommendations of the CDC at the time of reopening and will likely be dependent on the type of procedure being performed. For example, an N95 mask will not be required for an asymptomatic COVID negative patient examination/screening.

Do we have enough PPE?

We are currently investigating all avenues for the purchase of appropriate PPE. Our primary goal is to keep our students, patients, faculty and staff safe. We will only reopen certain areas of the clinic if we know we have enough PPE to meet this goal.

Will I get a refund for tuition if the clinics or Sim Lab are closed for an extended period?

There is no tuition charged for the summer semester so there will be no tuition refund.
