COVID Dashboard update for April 9

Message sent on April 9, 2021

Jeff Foster and Darrien Davenport update the community about wearing masks, testing, and symptom monitoring.

Dear Campus Community,

Every Friday, we will send an email directing you to the College’s COVID-19 dashboard.

The College continues to operate at a moderate alert level. Please note that based on a number of current conditions, including the campus positivity rate and local conditions, the College could change the alert level or enact increased mitigation strategies. The campus community will be notified immediately if the alert level changes and if new mitigation strategies have been enacted.

Reminders and updates:

  • Mask reminder: As the weather continues to get warmer and students and employees are outside more frequently, please be reminded that masks must be worn at all times other than those instances outlined in the health guidelines section of the COVID-19 website.
  • Testing: As a reminder, the testing center will be closed from from noon to 12:45 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Read more. Students are required to test twice per week. Either on Tuesday/Saturday or Wednesday/Saturday. As we conclude the week, all students should report to Plank Gym tomorrow (Saturday, April 10) to be tested unless they have an exemption. Those students exempt from testing are already aware of their exemption. Students who miss COVID-19 testing for a second time are subject to being assigned to remote study.
  • Symptom monitoring: Please remember that students are required to conduct and record daily symptom monitoring through the Medicat portal.

Thank you for your continued cooperation this spring semester. If you have questions, please contact
