Guidance: Resuming In-Person Instruction
available to aid in safely resuming in-person instruction at colleges,
universities, seminaries, trade schools, and adult basic education
programs across Pennsylvania. This guidance includes general
considerations to support healthy, safe, and inclusive learning
environments when resuming in-person instruction, operations, services,
and activities. This preliminary guidance was informed by input and
feedback from institutional leaders representing all sectors and regions
of the commonwealth's postsecondary landscape, and incorporates
existing federal and state public health and safety recommendations, and
may change as new information becomes available.
This guidance offers two sections:
Section I: Phased Strategies, Expectation, and Considerations for Safely Resuming In-Person Instruction in Pennsylvania
Section II: Guidance and Recommended Practices
for Resuming In-Person Instruction and Other Routine Operations at
Postsecondary Institutions in Pennsylvania
