On-Campus, In-Person Programs

The health and safety of our community is Duke's priority. In order to diminish the risks of COVID-19 transmission in our area, campus visitors are expected to comply with the following guidelines when attending Duke Executive Education programming at the JB Duke Hotel. Guests must also adhere to any international or regional travel restrictions.

Prior to an Executive Education Program

Please note that all participants will have to be fully vaccinated and upload documentation to the Fuqua Check-In website before attending a Duke Executive Education program. Please only travel to Duke University if you are feeling well with no COVID-19 symptoms present.

During the Program

Masks covering the mouth and nose are required in the classroom when attending programming offered by Duke Executive Education. After vaccinations, masks are the best way to prevent the spread of COVID. We have seen this on campus and in our health system. Duke Executive Education will have masks available on site if needed.

After the Program

If a program participant tests positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of the completion of a Duke on-campus program, he or she will immediately inform a staff member of Duke Executive Education who will inform all other individuals involved in the program of potential exposure.

Safety and Security

Please know that Duke's overall goals and protocols throughout have ultimately been for the safety and security of the entire Duke and Durtham community. As you may know, Duke has taken every necessary step to reduce the risk of student exposure to COVID-19 during their time on campus. Please understand that regardless of steps taken by Duke, your risk of exposure to COVID-19 and any COVID-19 variants remains elevated.

If you test positive, you will be required to isolate in your hotel room for the recommended isolation period, which is usually five days. Hotel rooms will be covered through the remainder of the program, and if isolation is needed after that time, it will be the financial responsibility of the individual. Alternate isolation plans may be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Due to the unpredictable nature of the public health situation, our safety requirements are subject to change as the situation warrants or as required to do so by Duke University, the city of Durham, the state of North Carolina, or by federal authorities.
