COVID-19 Updates

Immediate actions to reduce the spread of COVID-19

Publication Date

Dear Students,

Since the message we sent yesterday, we have seen an additional 23 student cases of COVID-19. As a result, we are asking the following:

  1. Students remaining on campus or in the area for spring break should schedule an additional COVID-19 test for Friday, March 26.
  2. Avoid indoor gatherings and frequenting bars and restaurants. For those of you on campus, we encourage you to take advantage of our outdoor spaces including the tents.
  3. Be aware that you could be spreading the virus without knowing it, be extra mindful of your actions and avoid contact with others especially anyone who is vulnerable or immunocompromised.

Identifying positive cases early and quarantining any close contacts as soon as possible is critical to reducing the spread.

Be well,

Fran’Cee Brown-McClure
Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students
