Comprehensive protocols and procedures remain in place at Cardinal Stritch University to maintain an environment that protects our students, faculty, staff and guests from the COVID-19 virus.
Protocols will continue to be based on evolving information on this global pandemic; decisions and actions will be based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the American College Health Association (ACHA), the State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) and the North Shore Health Department (NSHD).
While physical safety is important, we are equally attentive to the mental and emotional well-being of our campus community.

Stritch Unstopped: Spring 2023 edition
In shaping the Stritch Unstopped plan and as we continue to adapt our protocols based on evolving information on this global pandemic, we are mindful of the ways our Franciscan values must guide our plans. We will fortify our decisions and actions based on recommendations from the CDC, ACHA, DHS and NSHD, while maintaining our commitment to creating a caring community, showing compassion, making peace and reverencing all of creation.
The Stritch Health Response Team meets regularly to review and address a variety of issues and make recommendations to University leaders.
Stritch Unstopped Safety Protocols
Use the CDC Coronavirus Self-Checker to determine if you should seek medical care.
The following guidelines are recommended for all students, faculty and staff, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status:
If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home. You should also isolate if you are sick and suspect that you have COVID-19 but do not yet have test results. Continue isolation until you no longer have a fever and your symptoms have improved.
If you have been exposed to COVID-19, wear a mask for 10 days after the exposure and monitor for symptoms. If you develop symptoms, isolate, get tested, and stay at home until you know the test results.
If you are sick with any symptoms, stay home. This will help keep the Stritch community healthy and safe.
STUDENTS: If you test positive for COVID-19, you must contact faculty directly as soon as practical, just as you would when you are physically unable to attend class due to illness or for another reason. You are responsible for working with faculty to address any missed academic work during your absence, including attending classes virtually.
FACULTY/STAFF: If you test positive for COVID-19, you must notify your supervisor or Human Resources to receive further guidance.
