Recommended COVID-19 precautions for Halloween and upcoming events
October 28, 2021 7:39 PM

Dear undergraduate students,  

In the past several days, the SHIELD team has identified an increase in positive cases among undergraduate students, including those who are fully vaccinated. In light of this and the upcoming Halloween weekend, I would like to remind you that we have one of the safest COVID-19 ecosystems in the country that you can use to maximize your safety and the safety of others in our community.  

If your plans include travel or participating in Halloween or other activities we recommend you: 

  1. Take a COVID-19 test at an on-campus testing site as soon as possible and then test a few times in the next several days, even if you are fully vaccinated. 
  1. Please follow COVID-19 safety guidelines and/or recommendations such as wearing face coverings indoors and testing after traveling. 

Thank you for your continued patience, understanding and care for one another. If we are diligent, together, we can minimize spread and continue to enjoy all that an on-campus experience has to offer.  

I wish you all a fun and safe upcoming weekend.  


Robert J. Jones
