UPDATED 11 a.m.: All residential students were sent a message about how to help reduce virus transmission in the community.
UPDATED 9 a.m.: There has been a surge in confirmed COVID-19 cases among students, including students who live in campus housing. And, we are now seeing a need to quarantine more students because they were exposed to the virus.
Please help us to reverse this disturbing trend. It is critical and required by current public health orders, that you do not attend indoor gatherings – large or small – with people outside your household. Even if you think it is safe, it probably is not.
University Health Services officials are managing contact tracing and quarantine/isolation matters in coordination with other campus administrators and are reaching out to students who have been exposed.
Any student, faculty, or staff member experiencing symptoms or who may have been exposed to COVID-19, please stay home and review instructions on the UHS website.
