OU is preparing for a return to in-person instruction this fall. All in-person events on all three campuses are suspended through at least July 31. For Norman campus employees, including OU-Tulsa employees in Norman campus-based programs, a soft reopening of back-to-campus work will begin on July 6, with a fuller return slated for Aug. 3. It is OU Hillel's policy to follow the lead of University professionals, to ensure the safety of our students and community.
As it currently stands, OU Hillel's building is closed to students and the community. While significant events have been canceled, we will continue to provide student lunches and snacks for pick-up or delivery only (please contact us for dates and times). With many of our students away and to follow CDC protocols, programming will be done remotely to ensure the safety of our educators and students. We will continue to evaluate future event hosting and will send updates as necessary for events slated after this period and will be rescheduling our community events for the Fall 2020 Semester.
Until further notice, OU will subscribe to a university-wide masking policy, which applies to faculty, staff, students, and campus visitors across all three campuses. The masking policies can be found here. OU Hillel will follow a similar policy to the university and is in the process of determining how and what reopening will look like. Feel free to call or email any staff member with concerns. We will post our policy on this site by early August.
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. For additional information about COVID-19 and its symptoms, visit the CDC's website at www.cdc.gov. Thank you for taking this matter seriously, and for your commitment to the health, safety, and well-being of our students and community.
