Philadelphia Covid-19 Overview

Per City of Philadelphia recommendations, we will house one (1) student per residence hall room during the Fall 2020 semester. In order to accommodate all students who require housing, we have partnered with the Sheraton Downtown, located within a short walking distance of six minutes to Moore’s campus, to provide housing for seniors and some juniors. Sartain Hall, for comparison’s sake, is a three-minute walk to campus. A shuttle will also be made available to transport students from the hotel to Moore.

All students will be tested for COVID-19 when they first arrive on campus. We also ask that, if at all possible, students get tested before they depart home for campus and remain home if they test positive.

All on-campus classes will also be broadcast via Zoom (either concurrently or asynchronously) for students who wish to participate from home. Moore Faculty will be provided with the necessary tools to ensure that all students receive the best classroom experience, both in person and remotely, through rigorous training and additional resources. 

Safety Precautions

1. If you are a student and experience a fever or other flu-like symptoms, call Student Health Services to speak to our nurse (215.965.4032). If you are faculty or staff, stay home and contact your supervisor, Human Resources and Primary Care provider.

2. If traveling and feeling unwell, seek medical care. International SOS or your health insurance can be a good source of information regarding accessing care.

3. Get a flu vaccine: They are available by walk-in at local pharmacies. Seasonal Influenza occurrence in Philadelphia remains high and vaccination is the best preventive measure.

4. Use good hand hygiene: Wash hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, taking care to wash between your fingers and thumbs, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

5. Limit the spread of germs and illness: Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve or elbow. Refrain from touching your face, especially your mouth, eyes and nose. Avoid shaking hands and avoid sharing food, drinks, utensils, cups, vapes/JUULs, etc.
