Yesterday afternoon, President Hatch sent a COVID update to students, faculty, and staff; this message was also shared with families. Here is an excerpt:
Our goal is to begin the spring semester on campus in late January. Given continued consultation with public health officials and careful evaluation of our health protocols, we remain optimistic that it will be safe for students to return on time. The intent of this email is to inform you of factors that have influenced our current thinking and to share what we currently know about COVID-19 vaccine distribution for Wake Forest faculty, staff and students.
You can read the full message here.
Residence Life and Housing sent two follow-up messages: one to students living on campus or in University-sponsored housing, and one to students who are returning to the US from abroad and who had requested University housing for their required quarantine.
Also want to share some information from the Student Health Service about students submitting their COVID test results. Students’ results must have: name, date of birth, collection date, test type, and the result. The Student Health Service has more information about test submission here.
Things are moving at a brisk pace here as we get ready to welcome your students back to campus. There are a lot of final details we are working on, as well as additional communications in the works. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding during this time, and will bring you details as they emerge.
Most of all, I want you to hear that we are excited to welcome your students back. We have missed them, and we know they have missed the camaraderie of their friends and classmates. Campus doesn’t feel normal to me without our students’ energy. I can’t wait to see them again.
