Coronavirus Information Center
Calvin University is closely monitoring the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Our top priority is the safety of the Calvin community.
We have made—and will continue to make—significant changes to university operations to safeguard our community. This website contains the latest information about our response to COVID-19, and is updated regularly. To get started, we recommend checking the current state of university operations and then browsing our frequently-asked questions.
Latest update—Taking steps toward a safe re-opening in fall 2020
Calvin University is partnering with Helix Diagnostics in its plans for a safe return to campus operations this fall. The partnership agreement, which university leaders believe is the first of its kind in the state of Michigan and perhaps in the entire country, guarantees that Calvin will have access to 5,000 tests, ensuring all faculty, staff, and students will be tested and screened for COVID-19 as they return to campus. Learn more about Calvin's commitment to students.
This summer, Calvin experts are offering a multidisciplinary series of three-week courses on how to think about the pandemic. See the full lineup: Christian Witness in a COVID-Shaped World.
If you are a student, faculty, or staff member of the Calvin community and are experiencing symptoms that may be linked to COVID-19, please make a report:
