Campus Water Updates

Updated March 1, 8:48 a.m.

Cleaning, disinfecting, and water restoration began Wednesday and will continue through this week. We may continue to see disruptions and limited access to some buildings as our staff completes this work.

We have welcomed our residential students back to campus and will re-start our asymptomatic COVID testing process. Students and on-campus faculty and staff will need to return to campus next week to resume your places in the testing protocol. Faculty and staff should plan to test Tuesday, March 2nd, but may also test Wednesday, March 3rd. All students will test March 3rd and 4th. 

To reduce risk, classes will remain remote until Monday, March 8th. This will allow appropriate testing and quarantining. We anticipate access to academic buildings to become available Wednesday, March 3rd. Faculty and staff cleared to do so should plan to work remotely and remain off-campus.
