COVID-19 Prevention & Response Plan


March 11, 2022

Dear students, faculty, and staff,

Below, we report to you two things you need to know today.

Surveillance testing next week

Next week, COVID-19 surveillance testing will be available on Tuesday and Thursday, March 15 and 17, from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM in Greenwood. Individuals may also participate in testing anytime using one of the two satellite testing sites on campus, available in the Student Union and the Biology building. All community members are highly encouraged to test each week. Those who are not fully vaccinated (including boosters, if eligible) are required to test on campus once weekly. 

New COVID-19 cases

We are pleased to report that we have identified no new confirmed COVID-19 cases at Reed this past week. We continue to report all associated COVID-19 cases online, found in the "Total Cases" section of the dashboard.
