The University continues to track the impact of COVID-19 on our campus community. Since the original spread of the virus, 19 employees have been self-isolated; one is currently in isolation. Six students have been self-isolated since the original spread; none remain in isolation. To date, no individuals working or living on campus have tested positive for COVID-19.
It is imperative that we continue to practice physical distancing no matter where we are; we can help stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect others and ourselves by staying home whenever possible and practice proper safety measures:
- Maintain at least six feet between you and another individual.
- Wear a mask when you are in public where other physical distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Please note that all individuals living or working on the Lawrence campus are required to wear masks when they are in interior public areas or when gathering in a group both indoors and outdoors. Faculty and staff can request a mask by completing a request form; students should contact the Dean of Students.
- Avoid public transportation whenever possible.
- Limit non-essential travel.
- Limit social gatherings and avoid crowded venues.
- Practice good hygiene, including handwashing; disinfect surfaces you touch; and avoid touching your face.
- Follow these guidelines if you are feeling ill.
While we do not know of any Lawrence faculty, staff, or students that have tested positive for COVID-19 to date, we know that our community is feeling the impacts of this pandemic. Our thoughts are with all members of our community as we work to ensure the safety of our families and friends and wrestle with the effects of this global pandemic on all facets of our lives.
Thank you for your collective and individual efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.
