COVID-19

We Are UU

Loving our Neighbor. Trusting in God.

We are united in our efforts to keep our community safe. These pages outline our health and safety plan pertaining to COVID-19.

As of March 11, 2022, Union University is no longer tracking isolation and quarantine related to COVID-19 cases. We encourage individuals to treat COVID-19 as they would with other contagious illnesses. If you are feeling ill, please stay home except to get medical care from the Union Health Clinic or another nearby medical facility. Use good judgement and stay home until you are fever free for at least 24 hours without taking a fever reducing medication and symptoms have resolved or are improving. If you have further questions or need assistance, please contact Union University Health Services.

Data FAQ UU Health Services

Union University is encouraging, but not requiring,
COVID-19 vaccinations for students, faculty and staff.

The mask mandate at Union expired on April 15, 2021.
There are certain areas on campus where masks are still required.
Signs will be posted at these locations.

COVID-19 Testing Sites

While the COVID-19 RAPID test provides immediate results, a negative RAPID test result is not statistically conclusive. Therefore, the University strongly recommends seeking COVID-19 PCR testing, as both positive and negative rapid test results must be treated as positive COVID-19 cases until the results are confirmed at an off-site laboratory.

Message from the Vice President for Student Life

We are incredibly enthusiastic and optimistic as we prepare to embark on the 2021-22 academic year! As summer quickly draws to a close, we want to provide you with details related to the start of the fall semester and COVID-19. One of Union University's primary goals has been, and continues to be, to care well for the Union community of students, faculty, staff, and their families, even as we continue to fulfill our mission to provide Christ-Centered education that promotes excellence and character development in service to Church and society.

The following are details and links to resources pertaining to the University's plans for the 21-22 academic year:

  • All classes that are scheduled to meet in-person will do so, and classes that are scheduled to take place online will follow that format; relatedly, we will follow the pre-established academic calendar.
  • We are returning to normal activity (e.g., curricular and co-curricular events, class structure/size, chapel, athletics, etc.).
  • Move-in Day for new students and Welcome Week begin on Thursday, August 12.
  • Vaccines for students, faculty, and staff are encouraged, but not required, by the university. Vaccines are readily available for all members of the university community. Union's Jackson campus is partnering with the Madison County Health Department to offer the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on campus September 7 & 28. Students and employees can record their vaccination card here.
  • Union's Health Clinic on the Jackson campus is offering COVID-19 PCR testing. You can schedule an appointment here. Other sites offering testing can be found here.
  • Masks are not required on campus. Capacity limits and social distancing requirements have also been lifted. With that said, individuals should take personal responsibility for their health. If they feel unwell, they should stay away from others, seek medical attention, and obtain a COVID-19 test.
  • Union University will continue to follow state and local guidance related to isolation and quarantine protocols, as well as other recommendations to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
  • Additional protocols and a FAQ can be found on the Health Services webpage.

We are continually amazed by the Lord's favor and blessing on the people and place of Union University. Likewise, we eagerly anticipate the good things He will do in and through each of you over the course of this academic year.
