Emergency Planning and Implementation
Thoughtful and careful emergency pre-planning helped us establish a strong mitigation response during COVID-19. As we plan for a shift to an endemic state, it is important to reflect and make updates to our traditional emergency planning and training practices based on what the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us about planning for long-term crises.
Emergency Planning Focus Goals
- Transition from COVID-19 pandemic to endemic state.
- Identify those adaptions that were put into place in response to COVID-19 that should be retained and incorporated into the university's academic and general operations as ongoing good practice to meet the needs and expectations of post-COVID students, faculty and staff.
