COVID-19 Update: February 24, 2021

Wednesday, February 24, 2021

Faculty, Staff and Students,

After this update, we will be changing our COVID-19 communication strategy and will be sending these emails to the entire campus on a bi-weekly versus weekly basis. For the latest information including testing times and locations, please check the Marching Forward website. The weekly prevalence report will continue to be updated each Friday.

Our positive cases and subsequent quarantines on campus have been climbing so we continue to emphasize that the best thing we can do to reduce cases is for everyone to continue to wear your masks properly in any common indoor spaces, in addition to our other safety protocols such as maintaining social distance and washing your hands regularly.

We’ve made it this far – we have 2.5 months to go for this academic year. We want to keep everyone safe and healthy but it requires everyone to do your part. Let’s do this, Saints!

Due to our abbreviated spring break, asymptomatic student, faculty and staff testing for the week of March 1st through 5th will take place on MONDAY, March 1st only.

Ongoing COVID-19 testing for asymptomatic students, faculty and staff - effective March 8th until further notice are Mondays and Tuesdays from 9 am - 11:30 am in the Wellness Center. No appointment necessary.

Only individuals who are asymptomatic should come to the Wellness Center. If you have symptoms, contact the Wellness Center or your healthcare provider and follow the guidelines on the Marching Forward website under the heading “If you feel ill.”

Thank you,

Marching Forward Team
