Gallaudet’s reopening plan approved

September 11, 2020


The Government of the District of Columbia has approved the university’s reopening plan for Fall 2020. The 24-page document includes sections on key decisions; preventing the spread of COVID-19; student, employee, and community health, wellness, and safety; residence halls and other residential spaces; facilities operations; instructional, clinical training, and learning spaces; containment and mitigation; coordination with the District of Columbia; applicable codes and regulations that require flexibility; and plans for Spring 2021 and beyond. There is also a reference list. We thank the COVID-19 Leadership Team and the Office of Strategic Planning for preparing this document, and the Office of University Communications for its design work.

Our reopening plan is posted at, along with other related content.
