            EIU COVID-19


            University Emails

            EIU has been communicating with our students in regards to COVID-19. This is an archive of those emails.


            A Message from Eastern Illinois University President Dr. David Glassman

            March 12, 北京福彩官网

            To the Eastern Illinois University community:

            We write to update you on our response to the unprecedented health challenges presented by the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It is critical our university remains proactive and engaged in ensuring the health and safety of everyone within our university community.  

            In order to address these new challenges, a number of actions are necessary to protect the safety, health, and well-being of our University community. Our actions are based on current best practices for managing the quickly evolving situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, and in accordance with current COVID-19 information available from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as from state and local health officials. We understand that many questions remain, and ask for your patience as we navigate these new challenges together.

            The actions to be taken include the following:

            • Eastern Illinois University will extend its spring break for students through March 29. No classes will be held during this time.
            • Students will have the option of studying remotely from their campus residence or from 北京福彩官网 after spring break.
            • The University and all of its offices will remain open during this time period and will remain open moving forward.
            • To the greatest extent possible, when university courses resume March 30, classes will be delivered through online instruction and/or other alternative instructional methods. Online and other alternative learning methods will replace traditional face-to-face instruction and continue until further notice. We understand that some classes will be much more difficult to deliver online and in different formats. We continue to explore different approaches for completing these courses and faculty will communicate with their classes via email during the week of March 23rd.
            • Faculty are expected to return to work on March 23rd to develop the necessary actions to move their face-to-face courses to online or other alternative models, working in close consultation with the Faculty Development and Innovation Center, as well as their college leadership, to provide instructional excellence shaped by best practices.
            • There will be no change in programming for students enrolled in internship, clinical, or student teaching experiences off campus. These activities will continue, but may vary in the future based on the policies of the host organization, school, or business. If students have questions about these experiences, please contact the academic program coordinators.
            • Graduate assistants and student workers should report back to work on March 23rd as usual, unless otherwise indicated by their unit supervisors. Alternative schedules may be developed on a case-by-case basis as determined by supervisors.  Student employees will be contacted by the supervisors with more detailed information on student-worker assignments.
            • Students, faculty, staff and their families will be updated regularly via email and university websites during this time frame.  As such, it is imperative that students closely monitor their official EIU email accounts.
            • Residence halls and Greek Court will close throughout the duration of the previously scheduled Spring Break, though students may return on March 23.  In short, all residence halls and on-campus dining will be available to all enrolled students with housing and dining contracts. 
            • Effective March 12, all University-sponsored, non-essential domestic travel and all international travel is suspended until further notice, unless approved by the Office of the President. All forthcoming Summer 北京福彩官网 study abroad programs and international internships are canceled. Personal international travel is strongly discouraged, and we urge caution and the exercise of good judgment for personal domestic travel, in accordance with previous university recommendations. Those choosing to travel must follow updated university policies on self-isolation before returning to campus if returning from any country北京福彩官网 with a Level 3 or higher federal health warning.
            • Throughout this pandemic, Eastern Illinois University is attempting to contain or limit any spread by recommending observing the .
            • Effective March 16, events at Eastern Illinois University with 50 or more anticipated attendees are postponed through at least May 1. This includes all Registered Student Organizations (RSO) events. All gatherings falling into acceptable participant levels should follow the CDC’s guidelines. Events that do not fall into acceptable attendee limit parameters may opt for livestream or other telecommunication delivery, or be postponed to a future date. More information will be provided regarding the status of specific events.

            We recognize these actions will undoubtedly create challenges for students, faculty, staff members, and the greater Eastern Illinois University community. However, this pandemic has created unprecedented circumstances, making these actions prudent and necessary. For more information about COVID-19 and Eastern Illinois University’s response, please visit .

            We understand this message also will raise questions for which answers are not yet available.  In the interim, we will continue to have ongoing discussions with students, faculty, and staff members impacted by today’s decisions answering to more specific issues. We ask for your patience as we attempt to address individual concerns and circumstances. Until then, inquiries can be directed to covid19info@.

            Eastern Illinois University is a community unified by the deep, impactful relationships we create with our students. As such, we pledge to work together as we navigate these unprecedented circumstances. We appreciate your understanding as we move forward with the best interests of all involved driving our every decision.

            Instructional Planning For Student Success: COVID-19 Update

            March 11, 北京福彩官网

            To our campus community –

            As President Glassman’s email indicated last night, EIU is actively exploring the implementation of potential distance learning options in the coming weeks as a possible response to the swift and dynamic changes of the current public health crisis surrounding COVID-19.

            For this reason, I have met today with university deans, and together we are encouraging current on-campus students to bring all necessary academic resources and materials with them as they leave for Spring Break. Again, this is a precautionary action intended to allow our students to support learning at a distance, if needed, after the Spring Break period. More importantly, please know that there is no known presence of COVID-19 on our campus or community and that the safety of our students, faculty, and staff is paramount.

            Finally, and for purposes of clarity, the University will remain open—including our residence halls, cafeterias, and other services, although there may possibly be a transition from face-to-face to online instruction. As always, additional information will be shared with students and the campus as it becomes available or should further actions be required.

            Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs




            A Message from Eastern Illinois University President Dr. David Glassman 

            March 10, 北京福彩官网

            Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

            Please know that we are aware of wide scale changes occurring across other universities and their various responses to deal with potential fallout from the COVID-19 virus, especially following the spring break time period. EIU’s administration is closely monitoring these activities and are planning for and considering different responses, which may include alternative instructional models that move away from in-person classes. You will be receiving additional information in the future on any changes to a further EIU response, which has the capacity to happen quickly once announced, given the nature of this current health crisis. 

            Please know there is no presence of COVID-19 on our campus or in our community at this time.


            David M. Glassman




            Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Advisory Regarding Travel

            March 4, 北京福彩官网

            Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

            As the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) outbreak continues to evolve, there is growing potential for it to disrupt travel during Eastern Illinois University’s Spring Break beginning March 14 through March 22.

            Spring Break Travel Within the United States

            As of March 2, 10 states have reported confirmed and presumptive positive cases of COVID-19.  Although Spring Break destinations may not currently be within cities and states in which positive and presumptive cases have been diagnosed, the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) situation is rapidly evolving. At this time, there are no destinations in the United States which require self-isolation for 14 days after having visited, although this could change. 

            Spring Break travelers are strongly encouraged to regularly check updates to the CDC COVID-19 Situation Summary () and Johns Hopkins Hospital’s GIS Map () for locations where COVID-19 has been detected.  Should areas in the United States require 14 days of self-isolation, students will be notified through EIU e-mail.

            International Travel

            In recent weeks, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have raised health-related travel advisory levels and issued alerts for several countries, including China北京福彩官网, Japan, South Korea, Italy, and Iran. Individuals traveling abroad should consider the possibility of experiencing travel difficulties returning to the United States, including quarantine. 

            Any student, faculty member, or staff member traveling from international areas designated by the CDC as Level 3 Travel Health Advisory (Warning, Avoid Nonessential Travel) or Level 2 Travel Health Advisory (Alert, Practice Enhanced Precautions) must self-isolate at their permanent 北京福彩官网/residence before returning to campus.  Before being allowed to resume normal campus activities, those who have traveled must provide documentation of 14-day self-isolation.

            During the 14-day self-isolation period, faculty and staff will be required to use sick leave days.

            During the 14-day self-isolation period, students should contact all faculty to inquire how they may continue their studies remotely.

            As of March 2, the CDC has issued the following travel guidance related to COVID-19 (): 

            • Level 3 Travel Health Advisory, Avoid Nonessential Travel (14-day self-isolation before returning to campus):
              China北京福彩官网, Italy, Iran, South Korea

            • Level 2 Travel Health Advisory, Practice Enhanced Cautions (14-day self-isolation before returning to campus):

            • Level 1, Practice Usual Precautions (No Requirement for Self-Isolation):
              Hong Kong

            If you are considering international travel this spring, Eastern Illinois University Health and Counseling 北京福彩官网 and international travel officials encourage you to continue to monitor Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) travel advisories from the U.S. Department of State () and the Centers for Disease Control ().

            Preventative Measures

            As with any other virus, the best way to prevent infection is to avoid exposure. You can help prevent the spread of any respiratory virus by doing the following:

            • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20-30 seconds.

            • Avoid close contact with persons who have respiratory illness symptoms.

            • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

            • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

            • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

            • Stay 北京福彩官网 when you are sick.

            Eastern Illinois University will continue to work closely with local, state, and national public health organizations regarding the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) concern and will take necessary precautions to safeguard the health and wellness of our campus community.  Please be alert for additional university messages containing COVID-19 updates and other associated warnings and protocols. Updates and additional information may also be found at the Health and Counseling 北京福彩官网 Medical Clinic website. 


            Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) International Travel Self-Isolation Policy

            March 4, 北京福彩官网

            Any student, faculty member, and staff traveling from international areas which have been designated as falling under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Travel Health Notice Level 3 (Warning, Avoid Nonessential Travel) and Travel Health Notice Level 2 (Alert, Practice Enhanced Precautions) who wish to return to campus must self-isolate at their permanent 北京福彩官网/residence after departing from the country北京福彩官网 in question and before returning to campus/Charleston for a period of 14 days. The CDC maintains a list of COVID-19 Travel Health notices at: 

            Self-isolation is defined as “staying in one’s dwelling (house, apartment, room) entirely during the 14 days.  Individuals self-isolating should not go to classes, athletic events, work, or other social gatherings until the 14 days after the departure from the country北京福彩官网 in question has passed.”  Those in self-isolation should avoid public spaces and places, as well as avoid taking public transportation. If living alone, those in self-isolation should plan for others to bring food and other necessities to them.

            During the 14-day self-isolation period, faculty and staff will be required to use sick leave days.

            During the 14-day self-isolation period, students should contact all faculty to inquire how they may continue their studies remotely.

            Before being allowed to resume normal campus activities, those who have traveled must prove the 14-day self-isolation before being allowed to resume normal campus activities.

            Those who are unable to return to their permanent 北京福彩官网/residence for self-isolation should contact the  to make alternative isolation arrangements.
