Coronavirus Information

Spring 2021

Any traditional undergraduate student experiencing symptoms should call 479-524-7320 or email rhostler@jbu.edu. (Employees, please email afisher@jbu.edu)

  • In keeping with CDC guidance, JBU recommends, in general, that students wear masks in “public indoor spaces” and trust students to implement that policy appropriately. However, JBU will specifically require masks in classrooms, chapel, and when groups of more than 12 people are meeting indoors. To facilitate student learning, faculty will not be required to wear masks in classrooms if six-foot distancing is maintained.
  • The Dining Hall is closed to outside community members due to COVID-19 and space limitations.
  • External events will not be hosted at JBU without specific approval from the Cabinet.
