COVID-19/ Coronavirus Community Update

Special Notice as of today, July 8, 2020:

On June 1, we slowly began to open campus. To ensure our community’s safety, many of us are still working at home, but little by little you’ll begin to see our hallways fill up with staff and faculty excited to return to campus.


Watch our most recent note from Dr. Colip dated May 26 about our transitions back to campus and a few of our end-of-the-semester initiatives.

A report of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund can be found here.

It is our priority to keep you safe during this time. Please help us by taking the following precautions:
Please stay home if the following applies to you:
  • Traveled outside the country in the past 3 weeks.

  • Fever

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath

  • Sore throat

Help prevent the spread of viruses like COVID-19/Coronavirus:
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze with a tissue, and then dispose of the tissue.

  • Wash your hands frequently and use a paper towel to dry.

  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Seek medical advice from your primary care physician if you develop symptoms, and or have been in contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or if you live in or have recently been in an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19.

What we are doing:
  • Closely monitoring the advice and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

  • Educating our employees and students on preventative measures provided by the CDC.

  • Increasing the frequency and extent of our cleaning practices, such as additional wipe downs of all hard surfaces including the front desk, exam rooms, offices and our lunch rooms. 

  • Providing additional resources to patients, students and employees including additional resources for proper hand washing.

  • Implementing heightened sanitation and hand-washing procedures for all employees.
