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.
 
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.
