The Arlington Catholic Herald: Socially distanced Saints at Marymount

This fall, Marymount is offering four distinct modes of instruction: face-to-face delivery with more space between students and an increased number of class sections; hybrid delivery that combines in-person and online instruction; remote delivery that allows students to participate from a distance simultaneously; and online delivery that allows participation from a distance at their convenience. 

The university introduced a #SafeSaint initiative, which uses the school mascot as an acronym for taking safety precautions: Social distance of 6 feet; Are you a mask ambassador; Integrate hand hygiene; Notice symptoms; Take temperature.

All university members must complete the #CampusClear symptom tracker every day. Marymount is conducting contact tracing for students, staff and faculty, and offering on-site testing.

“As we have strived to create a safe and inviting campus for all, the focus on the collective health, wellness and safety of everyone in the Marymount community has been our top priority,” said Irma Becerra, Marymount president. “Now, we must all work together to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 — our collective health and safety is a shared responsibility.”
