Logan’s Fall 2020 Plan + COVID-19 Updates

Stay Informed

Fall 2020

Keeping You Safe

Density Reduction

Abiding by all regulations set forth by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention as well as state and county public health authorities, Logan has reduced the amount of seating in classrooms and public spaces to accommodate safe social distancing.

Logan has also enacted block scheduling which allows courses to be staggered and organized in smaller group settings. This reduces the number of times per week students and faculty are required to report to campus, thereby lessening exposure to larger groups and permitting increased flexibility.

All hands-on practical labs are at or well below the 25 percent occupancy rate for our facilities.

Face Coverings

Logan requires all individuals to wear face coverings upon entering any building and when occupying any common places, such as hallways, restrooms, offices, library, meeting rooms and other public areas, both indoors and outdoors. The only exception is when employees are alone in their office; at that time, they may remove their face covering.

Surgical face masks are required for students, faculty, staff and clinicians engaged in practical lab and clinic environments. During practical classes, faculty members and staff are responsible for ensuring that face masks are being worn properly and at all times by all participants.

Cleaning & Disinfecting

Logan University continues to practice frequent and rigorous cleaning and disinfecting procedures on campus, including:

  • Disinfection of all areas of the University daily using a misting gun with the product Vital Oxide

  • Multiple cleanings of all classrooms, including desks and chairs, as well as handrails and doorknobs, throughout the day

  • Multiple cleanings of all adjusting tables, exam tables in the clinic and labs, as well as other hard surfaces, throughout the day

New Air Filtration Systems

Logan has installed a new bipolar ionization system to eliminate airborne particulates, odors and pathogens and provide a cleaner and safer environment within the University’s facilities.

Individual Accountability & Compliance

While you are on campus and in our facilities, please adhere to the following:

  • Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people, unless working with a partner in a practical lab course or a patient in the clinical setting.

  • Avoid gathering in groups.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

  • Wear your face covering at all times, unless alone in your assigned office. See attached for proper mask use.

Failure to comply with our procedures may result in conduct sanctions.
