The COVID-19 Campus Team was charged to monitor the COVID-19 situation at JMU when reopening occurs with the goal of maximizing health and safety across campus. This team monitors the presence of the disease within the campus community, working with public health and local hospital officials to minimize outbreaks and the associated effect on the local health care system. Disease prevalence, COVID-19 testing and test positivity rates, isolation and quarantine bed status, and the capability of the local health care system to provide quality care will be watched. This group will work with the Senior Leadership Team to minimize risk to the health and safety of students, faculty and staff.

The team is co-chaired by Marsha Mays-Bernard, Associate Vice President for Wellness, Orientation and Multicultural Engagement, and Dr. Kristina Blyer, Interim Director of the University Health Center (UHC) for Medical Services. It includes university-wide representation as well as community partners from the Central Shenandoah Health District and Sentara-RMH Medical Center.
