COVID-19 Safety

It is imperative that we continue to be as vigilant as possible about basic health measures such as mask wearing, social distancing, frequent hand washing/sanitizing, and limited travel and gatherings. These steps not only protect ourselves but those around us.

The university is providing extensive information about how to keep yourselves and others stay safe and well informed.
