DelVal to provide residence hall use for Doylestown Health staff


Delaware Valley University will provide housing for health care workers from Doylestown Health to lend support during the COVID-19 crisis.

The university and Doylestown Health have a strong relationship as community partners. The organizations are also located within walking distance of each other, which made this a natural solution to an emergent need.

The university is providing a self-contained residence hall for Doylestown Health Associates on a short-term basis. Each guest will have a private room and bathroom for their use with parking adjacent to the building. Doylestown Health staff who use the facilities are those actively working throughout the health system.

Staff temporarily residing at the university are doing so for the safety of family or household members at home. None of the Doylestown Health staff members staying at the residence halls are symptomatic or have tested positive for COVID-19. They will not interact with the small number of essential DelVal employees or students who remain on campus.

DelVal, like other universities, closed residence halls and is delivering all courses via remote learning for the rest of the semester during this pandemic.
