Following the direction of the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, Erskine will no longer track COVID cases.
In view of the sharp decline in COVID cases on campus and in the larger community, the Administration has decided to lift all requirements related to testing, contact tracing, mandatory quarantine, face coverings, and social distancing.
Effective Tuesday, March 1, 2022, students, faculty, and staff experiencing COVID-like symptoms should proceed as if they had a cold or the flu: seek medical advice if needed, stay in your room or at home until you are well, and treat your symptoms.
Faculty and staff will no longer require face coverings or social distancing in class or campus facilities. Individuals are free to wear face coverings if they wish.
Since Erskine will not be tracking COVID cases, faculty are encouraged to revisit their attendance policies and amend course policies and procedures as necessary.
Returning to a normal pre-COVID environment will require some adjustment. We continue to take seriously the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff. Erskine supports your individual choices to take precautions you deem necessary.
