A variety of educational resources and trainings designed to keep the JMU community safe are planned for students. These trainings, developed by a team including members from Student Affairs, the UHC, Talent Development and Communications, include online opportunities for learning that students can access prior to campus reopening, in-person education that will be peer-delivered during orientation and an ongoing marketing campaign reminding the JMU community to practice behaviors that ensure our safety as much as possible and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Education that is currently available online includes:

  • Mask Usage: This training video addresses the appropriate use of masks, with content informed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Also available is a handout that can be posted in residence halls and other campus buildings.
  • Anti-stigma Training: This eLearning module focuses on avoiding stigma associated with COVID-19, with content informed by the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). Also available is a handout that can be distributed or posted.
  • Additional trainings, in online and in-person format, are in development for areas where students will need additional education. This will include maintaining physical distancing, handwashing, holding others mutually accountable for following health guidelines, and caring for others.
