Updated Coronavirus Guidance
Updated: August 18, 2022
During the past two years, Troy University has worked diligently to meet the challenges of COVID-19 by developing policies and procedures designed to promote health and safety while supporting a functional learning environment. As we begin a new academic year, we have been encouraged to see the decline in case numbers among our campus community, and, as such, our approach to the pandemic is evolving.
Moving forward, there will be no special operational procedures or guidelines related to COVID-19 at any Troy University campus or location. Masks are optional in all settings, and the University will no longer publish updates about case counts.
We ask that individuals continue to be proactive about their health and safety and treat COVID-19 as you would any infectious disease. Stay home if you are sick and seek medical care. If you have a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis, follow the latest CDC guidance regarding quarantine and isolation.
Students who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 must notify the University using the COVID Contact Tracing Worksheet (Positive) in order to receive an excused absence.
Students, faculty or staff who are exposed to COVID-19 do not have to quarantine, but it is recommended that a high-quality mask be worn for 10 days, according to the latest CDC guidelines. In light of the latest guidelines, COVID-19 exposure will no longer be considered an excused absence.
TROY’s Coronavirus website will remain online as a resource, with the latest information along with our past campus guidelines and messages archived. In the future, changes or updates regarding our policies will be posted here. University leadership continues to closely monitor the situation regarding COVID-19, and we will adjust our operating plans as needed to protect the health and wellbeing of the campus community.
