Given the risk to the learning community, students, faculty, and staff are required to report positive COVID-19 diagnoses to the University of Mount Union immediately upon notification. Failure to do so may result in referral to the Office of Student Conduct or corrective action via the Office of Human Resources.
Upon notification of a positive or probable case, the University will report to the Alliance City Health Department, who oversees contact investigation and notification for the Alliance jurisdiction. Contact investigation and notification for cases diagnosed outside of the Alliance jurisdiction will be handled by the respective local health districts. Persons who have had close contact with those who have tested positive (or probable) will be notified by the Alliance City Health Department or health department of jurisdiction in accordance with standard public health principles. If you are not notified, then you are not deemed to have increased risk because of exposure to those who have tested positive (or probable).
Mount Union is committed to keeping our community informed regarding the evolving COVID-19 situation and its impact on our campus. A COVID-19 web page has been established to provide updates as this situation continues to develop. We encourage you to check this page regularly for tips, resources, and frequently asked questions. Additional communication regarding updates will be provided via email as appropriate. Social media and/or text messaging (for students, faculty, and staff) may also be utilized as needed. Additional updates may be shared via UMU Today (students, faculty, and staff), Trustee Insider (trustees), Mount Union Matters (alumni and friends), and U-Connect (parents).
