Does Purdue have a plan in place in the event of a campus or community outbreak of COVID-19? (Added June 12)

Yes. 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 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.
