Procedures and safety measures
During the move in and orientation time, the campus will be at YELLOW level and continue until further notice.
- We are committed to providing a safe and reasonable learning environment for the entire Tabor community as we live life together during the COVID pandemic, fulfilling our mission. The following parameters guided the development of the phase-based plan:

The hospital will staff the lab and oversee related medical needs of students and employees. The analyzer has the capacity to process 30-50 tests per hour.
- Campus signage will communicate pertinent information.
- When contact tracing is needed, it will be in conjunction with the Marion County Health Department.
- All Fall 2020 residential courses will be offered in a hybrid model.
