Plan extensively for the possibility of a major outbreak of COVID-19 on campus

The Protect Purdue Implementation Team is developing a range of contingency plans based on situations and circumstances that might occur and that may require the University to pause or shut down some or all of our activities.

  • To prepare for this scenario, however likely or unlikely, Purdue is taking into careful consideration surrounding healthcare and treatment capabilities, on-campus testing capacities and back-up providers, and available isolation and quarantine capabilities on and around campus.
  • Contingency planning is also taking into account what is happening in the surrounding community, and federal and state guidelines.
  • Existing efforts, such as building resilient pedagogies that can adapt if a student must be isolated following a positive virus test, support our contingency planning.
