Return to Campus
n July, ASU launched its Summer of Care Vaccination Campaign to engage immersion (on campus) students who have not yet been vaccinated or have not uploaded their vaccination card to myhealth.asu.edu. As a thank you to those students who have been vaccinated and uploaded their vaccination card, weekly drawings were held for a wide range of great prizes. This campaign was extended into August in order to help boost vaccination card uploads.
Thank you to all the units who shared, posted and emailed our students about this campaign. Your efforts paid off with thousands of new vaccination card uploads. 🎉
A task force continues to meet to align and coordinate messaging for the university’s vaccination communication campaign and return to campus efforts. Due to these coordinated efforts, we ask that units not create their own messaging or creative around vaccines or COVID-19 related signage. Custom signage that has not been reviewed and approved is subject to removal.
Photography and video guidelines
- Photography and video should reflect current ASU policy. For now, that means avoiding imagery that shows large groups of unmasked students, whether indoors or outdoors.
- If archival imagery is being used, you can note that with a camera emoji and the year it was captured: "📷: 2019".
- It’s also suggested to include a disclaimer: "😷: ASU strongly recommends that everyone wear a face cover when inside a university building. Face coverings will be required in certain indoor settings where physical distancing may not be possible."
Web banner updates
The university has recently updated the standard green COVID-19 web banner for the Fall 2021 semester to align with key updates from the university. As such, every ASU website requires the current banner be swapped out with the new one shared below. Review the implementation instructions for developers and staff across the units and departments to seamlessly update the web banner on the ASU site(s) they manage and follow the steps to update the websites and webpages you manage as soon as possible. For questions, please see asu.edu/webservices.
How do I order “strongly recommended” signage for my space?
At this time, the strongly recommended face covering signs are permitted to building entrances only and are being managed through Facilities Management. This applies to all ASU buildings and locations.
The new face covering policy states that face coverings can be required in “other indoor settings where distancing is not possible.” I think my space qualifies, how may I order signage?
Besides classrooms, labs and some studio spaces, the university will not designate additional rooms for required masks and signage. Rather, individuals should make decisions on a case-by-case basis. If you cannot physically distance yourself in a particular room at a particular time, you can require masking. If problems and disagreements arise, reach out to your supervisors who can ultimately escalate to the supervising dean or vice president.
I would like to order physical distancing, limited entry or any other sign that was available last year. How do I order those?
At this time, there are only three signs approved for the university*:
- Face covering strongly recommended signs for building entrances, which are being managed through Facilities Management.
- Face covering required signs for indoor spaces where distancing is not possible.
- Managed through Facilities Management for university classrooms and teaching or research labs.
- Managed through designated units’ contacts for department managed classrooms and teaching or research labs.
- Elevator maximum occupancy signs, which are being managed through Facilities Management.
*Exceptions are being managed on a case-by-case basis.
