We cannot underestimate the continuing health threat posed by COVID-19. As a result, our decisions about how and when to re-engage on campus are informed by a team of our leading public health professionals and based on the most current scientific evidence, in addition to local and state regulations. 

We are all in this together. We can each do our part to minimize the spread of the virus. We can make the effort to learn how to protect ourselves, our peers and our community and prevent the spread of the virus.
