Academic Update for Instructors - 1/13/22

January 13, 2022 Updated

See the Academic Update for Instructors - 1/17/22 for updated guidance on face coverings.

Additional clarification has been provided regarding the university's face covering policy. Due to the increased transmissibility of Omicron, and with guidance from the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department, the following exception has been removed from UNL's face covering policy:

When giving a speech, lecture or broadcast to an audience so long as six (6) feet of distancing from other individuals is maintained and only while said speech, lecture or broadcast is being delivered.

All faculty, staff and students are required to use a face covering in classroom settings at all times unless they have an approved exemption.

Instructors are strongly encouraged to review the full, updated face covering policy before classes begin.

As always, check Information for Instructors/Researchers, @UNLacademics, and go.unl.edu/academics for future updates.
