The Path Forward

We are at our best when we are in community together, and it is for that reason we are working to keep students on campus this fall, with safety as our highest priority.

The pandemic means the risk of contracting the virus exists anywhere people are present, and it is impossible to guarantee a COVID-free environment, yet the University has implemented a number of protocols meant to lessen the risk. 

The UD Path Forward Task Force, supported by working groups, state and local health officials and an expert medical panel, developed the plans below following the University's guiding principles. 

Links to COVID-19 health information, an easy-to-navigate index of the University's COVID-19 guidelines and resources, including a dashboard of cases on campus, and previous messages can be found at the bottom of this page.
