UVI Classes in Spring 2021 to be Online and in-Person

The University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) announced that for Spring 2021 a mixed modality instruction model will be implemented, combining in-person and online learning, as well as on-campus residence living and work.

“The administration has continued to monitor the conditions in the Territory and the various executive orders issued by the governor,” said UVI President David Hall. “As a result of the improvement in overall conditions in the Territory, it is our intention to implement the previous plan in the Spring 2021 semester effective Jan. 4, 2021.” 

The University has added protective measures to high traffic areas on campus. Two SafePass IDS stations have been initially installed at the Administration and Conference Center Building and East Residence Hall on the St. Thomas Campus to ensure a safe on-campus environment. The devices are capable of reading temperature, scanning and disinfecting persons upon entry into buildings. Other protective measures will include the mandatory wearing of a face mask or shield prior to entry. As students return to campus residence halls, only single-occupancy rooms will be available.

The University of the Virgin Islands will be using the Campus Clear app to facilitate daily self-monitoring for Covid-19 symptoms. This free app provides a short survey, which takes less than 10 seconds to complete, daily.  It will be an important part of UVI’s efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on campus.
