Temple University has put a number of measures in place to minimize the potential for the spread of COVID-19.



Any student who tests positive will be asked to return home or directed to designated on-campus housing to isolate.

At the end of July, all students were emailed and asked to quarantine for two weeks before arriving on campus.
