Testing & Sanitation Team

The Testing & Sanitation committee works in partnership with Speare Memorial Hospital and the Regional Health Network to develop a testing program that ensures the safety of all students, faculty, staff and administrators returning to Plymouth State University (PSU) campus for fall semester. The testing program is based on the most updated public health recommendations from the Center of Disease Control and the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services.

Integration with PSU’s Fall 2020 Opening Plan

On July 10, 2020, PSU released its Fall 2020 Opening Plan. The plan runs close to 100 pages, beginning with Page One, which reads, “The health and safety of our community is our primary concern and what motivates all of the work that we are doing.” It covers all aspects of our operations and will continue to be updated throughout the summer.
