Fall Return to Campus

The health and safety of the Drexel community is our highest priority, and we are committed to providing our Dragons with as much information as possible as the University develops and implements measures that will allow us to move forward in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 Precautions

At Drexel, we remain dedicated to maintaining the health and safety of all members of our University community. But, we need your partnership in this commitment as we all work to keep Drexel safe together. Please adhere to the following guidelines in order to protect the health and safety of others and help stop the spread of COVID-19.

  • Monitor your health and know the symptoms of COVID-19. Symptoms to watch for include fever or chills, cough, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea. If you have difficulty breathing, chest pain, confusion, or changes in color on your lips, gums, face, around the eyes or nails, seek medical care immediately. More information on the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 can be found on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) COVID-19 website.
  • Download the Drexel Health Tracker app. Use of the Drexel Health Tracker is required by all members of the Drexel community. Anyone planning to make their way to campus should use this mobile-based app to confidentially report their symptoms and access key resources to help stay healthy. Afterall, tracking your symptoms is the best way to know if you should stay home to protect your health and the health of those around you. It also helps the University learn more about the spread of COVID-19 and how it is impacting the Drexel community, which in turn can shape our strategies moving forward to further reduce the risk of viral transmission on campus. Students must download the Drexel Health Tracker app at least 14 days prior to move-in. If a student experiences any illness within 14 days of move-in, please contact housing@drexel.edu to schedule a new move-in timeslot.
  • Take everyday preventative actions and practice proper hygiene. This includes washing your hands frequently; avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands; and covering your coughs or sneezes with a tissue and throw the tissue directly in the trash.
  • Maintain distance between yourself and others. It's important to stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms' length) from other people. Reminders have been placed throughout campus to help everyone remember to social distance.
  • Make sure to bring the proper protection equipment with you to campus. Masks are required while in campus buildings, as well as in public spaces where distancing is not possible. This means that both you and anyone arriving to campus with you must bring a mask to utilize while on campus. Masks will be available from Drexel on an emergency basis. And don't forget your hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies, as regular cleaning of frequently touched surfaces is one way to safeguard the community from COVID-19.
