Will fall semester still begin on Aug. 16, 2021?
Yes. ODU’s fall semester will begin on schedule on Aug. 16, 2021, with classes returning to an on-campus, in-person format.
Will masks be required on campus for the fall semester?
No. ODU’s policies align with guidance and recommendations issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As such, individuals who are fully vaccinated
are not required to wear a facemask while on campus or socially distance, either indoors or outdoors; however, they are welcome to wear a facemask if they so choose. Individuals who are not fully vaccinated are encouraged to wear a mask and practice
Will ODU randomly test students for COVID-19?
We don’t expect to. Throughout the 2021 spring semester, ODU worked with Central Ohio Primary Care to randomly test 3% of students on a weekly basis to adhere to state guidelines
and recommendations. At this point, it is unclear whether random student testing will be required at any point during the 2021-22 academic year. ODU’s testing policies will be dependent upon recommendations and guidelines issued by local, state
and/or federal public health officials, including the CDC.
