Let’s Stay Healthy Together

This site offers guidelines for keeping healthy that are based upon recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health authorities, and our current COVID-19 Community Level (low, medium, high). By working together and following these guidelines, we can help protect the health of everyone on campus and in our community.
