Our Path Forward

Last updated June 2, 2021

Please find below updated information as it relates to COVID-19 health and safety guidelines for our campus operations.

DISCLAIMER

This is a complex and fluid situation that continues to evolve rapidly and all information on these pages is subject to change as deemed necessary by University leadership in accordance with guidance and recommendations issued by federal, state, and local public health and government officials. As information becomes available and guidance changes, we may have to adjust our policies and procedures quickly.

COVID Testing, Daily Health Checks and Vaccine Information

Will you require students to have a COVID vaccine to attend classes in 2021-22?

We strongly encourage all students living on campus, participating in intercollegiate athletics, and attending classes on campus to be vaccinated, but it is not required. Students are encouraged to upload their COVID vaccine documentation into the Healthy Roster system. This helps for quarantine determinations, if necessary. 

Is a negative test required before students return to campus for fall classes or move-in?

Before arriving to campus, all students must submit one of the following into the Healthy Roster system:  

  • Proof of completed COVID-19 vaccination series: 
    • Date of final dose must be received 14-days or more before arrival to campus.   
  • Proof of negative (-) COVID-19 test result dates within 3-days prior to arrival to campus:  
    • Rapid or PCR test results only. COVID-19 antibody tests will not be accepted.   
  • Proof of positive (+) COVID-19 test result up to 90-days prior to entering campus: 
    • Students who have tested positive for COVID-19 within 90-days of their return to campus date are exempt from providing a negative test result to return to campus, provided that they are asymptomatic at the time of return and that they provide documentation of the positive test which includes the date of the test. 
Will the daily health check app be used, or health checks still be required daily?

At this point in time, the daily health check app submission will not be required. We ask students, faculty, and staff to be diligent in continuing to self-monitor their health and symptoms. We will have an on-campus medical clinic, at least three days per week (and access to TeleHealth services at other times).

Will social distancing requirements still be in place?

Per the current CDC guidelines, we encourage individuals to maintain some level of social distancing and if they are going to be a large crowd to consider wearing a mask, even if vaccinated.

Will masks still be required in common areas?

See above.

Will on-campus testing still be available?

Yes through the 2021 fall semester.

What will be the protocols if someone does get COVID?

We will follow quarantine and isolation protocols, as determined by the Kentucky Department of Public Health. We will maintain an on-campus space for isolation. Per the CDC guidelines, unvaccinated students who have been exposed will be required to leave campus and quarantine offsite, at their own expense.

Residence Halls

Will you require students living in campus housing to have a COVID vaccine?

See previous answer above.

Will residence hall capacity return to normal?

Yes, full capacity.

What will the visitor policy be in the residence halls?

Students can have guests again in their residence hall rooms or residence hall common spaces during the designated visitation hours only. Guests are defined as any person who is not a residential student at Midway or not an assigned occupant of the space in question. At this time, overnight guests will not be permitted in campus residence halls.

Will my parents be able to help move me in the residence hall?

Yes.

Academics

Will you offer asynchronous or synchronous classes for in-person instruction?

At this time, long term remote synchronous instruction or asynchronous instruction for in-person classes will not be available for the 2021-22 academic year. As always, accommodation requests should be directed to Student Affairs.

Will there be a fall break and spring break?

Yes.

Will all my classes be back in regular classrooms?

The majority of classes will be held in classrooms in the academic buildings. However, the Library will have temporary classrooms.

Campus Dining

What will the dining hall food set-up and seating be like?

The dining hall seating and food service set-up will return to normal occupancy and operation.

Event Attendance

Will athletic events be open to students to attend? Will families be able to attend?

Yes.
