2021 COVID-19 Update

Dear Campus Community,

With 2020 in the rearview mirror, we're eager to see what the new year will bring. Now that COVID-19 vaccines are being distributed nationally there is reason to hope we're making positive steps on our way to ending this global pandemic.

But it's important to remember this is only the beginning. All of the safety guidelines that allowed us to remain on campus during the fall semester will be in place for the foreseeable future. Wearing masks, physical distancing, completing the PantherHealth Survey, and washing hands frequently are precautions we all must continue to take this winter and next spring. Please look for future communications relating to vaccine availability as we continue to move forward together.

If you have a question, please visit forwardtogether.uni.edu or email it to forwardtogether@uni.edu. Thanks for all that you do to keep yourself, your family and the Panther community safe.

Happy New Year!

John Vallentine, Associate Provost for Faculty
Joseph Rayzor, Director of Risk Management, Environmental Health and Safety
