Keeping Our Campus Healthy

As you’ve likely read before, the combination of vaccinations, testing and face coverings in many settings offers a high level of protection against COVID-19. We are fortunate to have a highly vaccinated campus community and other COVID-related health and safety measures in place that allow us to identify and isolate positive cases and protect against community spread. 

We have implemented a robust arrival testing protocol for students to detect positive cases and we are prepared to support those who may be asked to isolate or quarantine if they are COVID-19 positive or a high-risk close contact. 

Fully vaccinated onsite faculty, staff, students, and postdocs are testing weekly beginning this week, while unvaccinated students, postdocs, faculty and staff are testing twice weekly. In addition, face coverings are required indoors and at crowded outdoor events where distancing is not possible.
