Safety and expectations

Our commitment to each other

Our entire university community will need to follow these baseline behaviors to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.  Mizzou community members are expected to take these proactive steps to monitor their personal health, stay home if they are feeling unwell and protect the safety of our entire community.

These current Show Me Renewal precautions and updated CDC guidance can help keep you and others safe:

  • Monitor for symptoms: Students, faculty and staff are required to monitor their health on a daily basis. Download the #CampusClear app on your smartphone if you haven’t already.
  • Stay home when needed: If you are feeling unwell, experiencing any unusual symptoms that may be related to COVID-19 or if you have been exposed to or diagnosed with COVID-19, do not come to campus.
  • Quarantine effectively: New CDC guidelines indicate additional options to reduce quarantine timelines for contacts of those diagnosed with COVID-19. Follow your health care provider’s guidance regarding isolation/quarantine periods.
  • Travel safe: As always, maintain social distancing, wear your face covering and follow other Show Me Renewal guidelines for travel.

Safety away from campus

where's my alt?

Maintain 6 feet between yourself and others on and off campus.


Keeping space between you and others is the best tool we have to avoid being exposed to the COVID-19 virus.

  • Each person must remain at least 6 feet (about two arm lengths) from others.
  • Maintain that distance in classrooms, corridors, laboratories, studios, recreation areas, common spaces, elevators, stairwells and social settings.
  • Do not congregate in restrooms while waiting your turn.
  • Most elevators will allow for only 1 to 2 riders (distanced 6 feet apart) at once. Use the stairs when possible.
  • Do not lean on elevator walls or touch your face after using elevator buttons. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after you exit the elevator.

Wear face coverings when you are on campus even when you are outside, unless you are alone.

Face coverings are an additional step to help slow the spread of COVID-19 when combined with everyday preventive actions and social distancing in public settings.

Face coverings & usage guidelines

Practice good health hygiene

Wash your hands.


  • Wash hands (with soap and water for at least 20 seconds) frequently throughout the day.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, you can use an ethyl alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60%-95% alcohol.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Throw used tissues in the trash.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water immediately after coughing, sneezing, blowing your nose or using the restroom.
#CampusClear app

Check and log your temperature and symptoms daily using the #CampusClear app.


The university requires you to complete a daily symptom and temperature checklist, but self-monitoring is easy and fast with the #CampusClear app. #CampusClear provides a daily push notification that will act as a regular reminder to check your symptoms and temperature.

Symptoms & Monitoring

If you are a student, you must follow the off-campus conduct policy.

This policy (CRR 200.010.C.11 and .14) means that if you are at or host a party of more than 20 attendees, you could be sanctioned as a violation of the Standard of Conduct.

All policies/standards are based on university expectations as informed by city, county and state guidelines. Compliance with these policies falls under the Collected Rules and Regulations (CRR).  You must follow federal, state, and local public health orders while you are off campus, too.

Intervene or report unsafe behavior
