We cherish our commuter students’ presence on campus. For safety reasons, we need to limit and create safer ways for commuter and dorm students to interact. We are allowing interactions in classrooms, during athletic practices and games, and during lunch in the cafeteria – all with social distancing. If we increase the number of interactions, it will come with an increased risk of COVID exposure. Increasing the number of contact points increases the complexity of any contact tracing efforts in the event we do have a positive case, so we are looking to reduce both risk of contact and increase our ability to protect everyone. We are mindfully balancing the need for student interactions with overall community safety.
