Reentry Testing & Quiet Phase Conclude
Thursday, January 21, 2021
At this time, we have completed the College’s Reentry Testing process. Over 1300 tests were administered with a positivity rate of 1%. An additional 10 positive cases were identified through our pre-arrival testing requirement for students. Pre-arrival tests were conducted at home prior to students’ return, so these numbers will not be included in our dashboard statistics. read more
Beginning Friday, January 22, the Reentry Quiet Phase will conclude and normal activity that complies with the College’s pandemic plan and our mitigation strategies may resume.
Now we will move into our surveillance testing protocols. A detailed email is forthcoming.
Please be reminded to conduct daily health checks, wash your hands regularly, wear your mask, and remain physically distanced from others. May we, as a College community, remain healthy, well, and committed to working together toward a successful semester.
Reentry Testing and Quiet Phase Thursday, January 14 through Thursday, January 21
Tuesday, January 12, 2021
Thank you, all, for your cooperation, questions, and feedback regarding our reentry testing procedures. Pre-arrival testing is an important part of our safe reopening, providing us with a solid assessment of the health and well-being of our campus community. Students - If you have been tested off campus and are awaiting your results, thank you. Please post those results to the Student Health Portal as you receive them. To date, only a small percentage of students have submitted their pre-arrival COVID test results and a number of those are positive. Many more students are reporting difficulty getting testing and we understand this. This is why we are requiring on campus testing as well.
COVID-19 Response Weekly Update
Monday, January 11, 2021
Last semester we reported positive cases as we received the results from the laboratory. We learned this created much anxiety across campus. With the addition of surveillance testing this semester, we anticipate more positive results and want to share this information with the campus in such a way that supports a healthy community without creating undue stress. As such, we will send weekly updates with case counts and quarantine numbers at the same time as the COVID dashboard is updated. These messages will be sent on Monday afternoons. We hope this will be a welcome change.
