PITTSBURGH — Students will be allowed back on Pitt’s campus for the spring semester starting Jan. 29.

According to new guidance from the university, students need to shelter in place for at least seven days before coming to campus. That includes:

  • Only leaving the house for medicine, food or emergencies
  • Modifying exercise routines by keeping a physical distance of at least 6 feet
  • Wearing a face covering
  • Eating separately if people in a household are unable or unwilling to shelter in place

All students returning to campus will be given a COVID-19 test, which will need to be taken and returned to Quest. Additionally, students coming from out of state are required by the state to have a negative test result.

Once students are back, they will be required to shelter in place for 10 days. A university wide shelter-in-place period will begin on Jan. 29 for all campuses.
