University-sponsored travel is permitted in the PURPLE phase, but must be approved by a Vice President or designee (employees) or student organization governing council and advisor (students).
Students are able to leave campus to work, shop, eat, and have fun. To minimize the risk to the Furman and Greenville communities as much possible, we recommend that students keep the following guidelines and precautions in mind:
In the PURPLE phase, faculty and staff may travel for university business with supervisor approval. Employee travelers should follow CDC guidance on safe travel.
In the PURPLE phase, students and student groups may travel with the appropriate student organization governing council and advisor approvals. Student travelers should follow CDC guidance on safe travel.
Faculty and staff who wish to plan field trips or other off-campus activities for students should communicate with the appropriate individual below well in advance of the proposed experience. These experiences must follow the established off-campus protocol and should meet these criteria.
Faculty instructing these courses or staff advising these student groups should serve as the Furman Contact described in the protocol. Faculty and staff must have all students submit two forms to the appropriate individual above, and in some cases, the off-campus site must also submit a form.
Faculty and staff should also be aware of the off-campus travel guidelines. If students (and faculty or staff) travel off campus to participate in a Furman-sponsored activity:
The FUPD campus shuttle still operates with the following protocols:
The FUPD weekly shuttle to Wal-Mart operates under similar guidelines.
The SGA shuttle to downtown Greenville has been suspended until further notice.
The university will closely monitor the evolving circumstances related to COVID-19, along with rapidly developing scientific knowledge and medical resources, to determine the appropriateness for adjustments and contingencies.
