COVID-19 information

Reducing the risk of COVID-19 infection on campus is a shared responsibility, and everyone needs to do their part. No university can guarantee an environment free of COVID-19, and even with all of SPU’s policies and protocols, it is still possible that people could contract COVID-19 on campus. However, by collectively taking precautions, we can promote each other’s health and well-being.

Below are links to the resources available to SPU students, faculty, and staff regarding coronavirus.

COVID-19 testing resources
