We began the interim session yesterday and have welcomed back, or are in the process of welcoming back, a number of students to campus. As we approach the next several weeks and with an eye on what is happening outside the College, we have some helpful suggestions for employees.
Amid the news of the rapid spread of the omicron variant, it may have been easy to overlook that two treatments were approved in trying to prevent COVID-19 deaths among the highest-risk groups. This is welcome news and will begin to alter the way we navigate the illness. Vaccines remain by far the best defense we have against the most devastating impacts of COVID-19. The high vaccination rates for our campus community served us well last semester. All of us have been busy updating protocols, monitoring news from the CDC, and looking ahead to the start of the spring term in a few weeks.
Much more information about spring protocols will be coming soon. In the meantime, stay healthy, and let us know if you have any questions.
