I hope you’ve been enjoying the beautiful weather, which is supposed to last through the weekend. This is a final reminder that you must act quickly if you are interested in Friday’s campus vaccine clinic for students — an opportunity that many people have been seeking for months.
Sign-up for Friday’s vaccine clinic and COVID-19 pool testing ends at 11:59 p.m. tonight, Thursday, April 8. Appointments are required for both.
It will be a busy Friday near the Student Life Center and Park Center, so please remember the importance of scheduling appointments by Thursday night. Recreational Sports also will host lawn games and other outdoor activities at the Student Life Center Friday afternoon, so I hope you will take the opportunity to enjoy the weather safely.
We know that the vaccine is effective at preventing the recipient from becoming sick, but there remains a chance that a vaccinated person might still spread the virus. Remember that weekly testing will continue to be required for everyone on campus along with other safety measures such as face coverings.
There are many reasons to be hopeful about the remaining weeks of the semester. You continue to make an extraordinary difference.
All the best,
Erik J. Bitterbaum
