COVID-19 Prevention & Response Plan


January 11, 2021

Greetings students, staff, and faculty, 

As you may be aware, we experienced an unexpected disruption of our surveillance-testing activities this morning, which resulted in a delay of about one hour to the start of testing for the day. I apologize for the inconvenience this caused. We strive to design our testing processes to be as convenient as possible, and we take situations like this seriously. We are and will continue to be in discussions with our testing partners to ensure steps are in place to prevent future issues.

If you were unable to complete your weekly COVID-19 surveillance test today, please feel free to sign up for another test for later this week. Testing is available from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, January 14, and Friday, January 15.

As always, we appreciate your continued patience, flexibility, and support as we navigate the challenges presented by COVID-19. If you have additional questions or concerns, please reach out to the COVID-19 Risk Assessment Group at
