University continues to monitor COVID, flu and other concerns

During winter break, the university will continue to monitor the situation with COVID, influenza and other viruses. At this time, we anticipate starting the spring semester on Jan. 17 with in-person classes as planned. However, COVID and other viruses have been unpredictable in the past. If we need to adjust our plans, we will inform the campus community through email and post updates to the Virus Information website

At a time of travel and family gatherings, faculty, staff and students are advised to take precautions to protect their health and their community, including:

  • Get up to date on vaccinations against COVID-19 and influenza. Vaccines are easily available at health care clinics, pharmacies and other sites.
  • If you are not feeling well, don’t go out.
  • Wash your hands.
  • Avoid crowds or crowded areas, when possible.
  • Wear a mask, especially in indoor settings and if you are not feeling well.
  • Seek medical attention if you have symptoms that are moderate or severe.
