      As institutions of higher education reopen for in-person instructions, it is important to have systems in place for the monitoring and evaluation of COVID-19 mitigation strategies. This resource provides example evaluation questions, indicators, and data sources to help institutions of higher education, their administrators, public health agencies, and evaluation professionals to monitor and evaluate the implementation and impact of COVID-19 mitigation strategies in institutions of higher education on transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

      CDC’s Considerations for Institutions of Higher Education provides considerations on strategies to prevent SARS-CoV-2 transmission. institutions of higher education may consider implementing multiple COVID-19 mitigation strategies as they reopen including, but not limited to, requiring students, faculty, and staff to wear masks, restricting mixing between groups, integrating safe and effective cleaning and disinfection, communicating prevention messagespdf icon, ensuring social distancing (e.g., maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet from others) as much as possible, limiting large group gatherings (e.g., assemblies, orientation), enhancing ventilationexternal icon in buildings, and reinforcing hand hygiene. These mitigation strategies may be tailored to the needs and situation of each school, with special attention to individuals at increased risk and disproportionately affected populations. The figure provides an abbreviated and tailored version of the logic model for U.S. Community Mitigation Strategies for COVID-19 for institutions of higher education.
