We want to update you on our COVID-19 response. We learned this morning that we now have two confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in our campus community. Both individuals are in isolation, and we will continue to follow the protocol that has been established by the university’s response team regarding contact tracing and quarantine/isolation. This is not an unexpected event as we have watched and learned a lot from other schools over the last thirty days. While we will not necessarily make an announcement for each instance, we did want to make our community aware of our first cases and to offer the following reminders and updates.
We know that some positive cases are inevitable, but, with your continued cooperation and support we can be among the institutions that successfully maintain a campus that is as healthy and safe as possible. Everyone’s continued attention to expectations for monitoring yourself through our app, social distancing, and facial coverings can make a significant difference, especially in limiting close contacts.
