COVID-19 Response Weekly Update

Share on:

Posted on 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.

As always, tending to our mitigation strategies is our #1 tool in fighting COVID. Those strategies are:

  • Properly wearing a mask, covering both your nose and mouth
  • Physical distancing at all time (6 feet apart)
  • Daily temperature and symptom screening (recommend the use of the COVID ALERT PA app)
  • Frequent washing of hands
