The University of Oklahoma will be returning to in-person instruction this fall. According to the University and the fact that the nature of COVID‐19 remains dynamic, OU's Plan will remain dynamic. You can read OU's COVID plan by using this link. It is our Hillel's policy to follow the lead of University professionals, to ensure the safety of our students and community.
As it currently stands, Hillel's building is closed to students and the community. To ensure the safety and well-being of our staff, students, and community, we will not host in-person meetings or programs in the building until it is safe to do so. Staff members will be working in the building, with varying hours, beginning Monday, August 17th. Our staff is available to our students, parents, and community via phone, video chats, and emails during regular business hours or by appointment. Staff may set-up in-person meetings with students (or others) off-site following Hillel, local, state, and CDC guidelines. Hillel COVID-19 Task Force's Reopening Plan can be read here, we will continue to monitor the situation and revise our plan as needed.
Any students needing access to kosher lunches and snacks, please contact our director, Kasi Shelton. Our staff and student leaders will continue to provide outreach, programs, connections, and support to all of our students and community members. We know that in these times of uncertainty, it is even more important to affirm togetherness and belonging. Please contact us directly with any questions or concerns at (405) 321-3703.
For our students and community: If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, call your medical care provider as soon as possible. Please also avoid contact with others; do not travel unnecessarily, and continue practicing good hygiene that minimizes the possibility of virus spread.
