This page contains important information about personal travel and holiday celebrations. Please read through it as you consider your upcoming holiday plans. It’s essential that we take stock of the recent increases in COVID-19 cases regionally and nationally and adjust our plans accordingly.
What the Experts are Saying
Last week Dr. Anthony Fauci warned that household gatherings are a key component in the virus upticks, and CDC Director Robert Redfield said in a call to state governors that “what we're seeing as the increasing threat right now is actually acquisition of infection through small household gatherings.” Redfield went on to say that, “Particularly with Thanksgiving coming up, we think it's really important to stress the vigilance of these continued mitigation steps in the household setting."
People who are sick, live with someone who is in a higher-risk category for severe illness from COVID-19, have recently tested positive or presumed positive, or have been exposed to a person with COVID-19 should delay travel.
Prior to attending holiday gatherings please review our travel policy and abide by all College regulations, including daily screening and symptom reporting.
If you participated in a gathering during the holidays—including traveling, dining outside your home, hosting social gatherings, or being in unfamiliar venues or around new people—or if you think that you may have been exposed during your celebration, please follow this advice.
