As we enter our 10th week of the fall semester I want to take a moment to thank you all for your continued diligence in protecting our campus community from the spread of coronavirus. Because of your attention to the Rocket Prevention Principles, we’ve successfully kept campus positivity rates well below the local and statewide averages. Thank you!
We must continue our commitment to keeping our campus community safe. As we’ve seen in recent reports, much of the country — including the state of Ohio — is experiencing another wave of COVID-19 positive cases. It is critical that you wear a face covering while on campus, maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others and wash your hands regularly. If you aren’t feeling well, please stay away from others.
With the flu season quickly approaching, it is more important than ever to get an annual influenza vaccine. As a reminder, UToledo is still offering flu vaccines for students, faculty and staff on both campuses. You are encouraged to register in advance at influenza.utoledo.edu.
Health Science Campus:
Your health is a top priority. Before Thanksgiving break, we’re working to partner with the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department to offer additional asymptomatic COVID-19 testing to members of our campus community. More details will be available in early November.
It is because of your individual and collective actions that we’ve been able to successfully navigate this pandemic to date and maintain on-campus learning. We must all stay focused on protecting our campus community. Keep up the great work!
Gregory Postel, M.D.
