COVID-19 Campus Activity Updates

Sunday, October 11, 2020

Dear Albion Community,

Thank you for your cooperation this week with our temporary increased restrictions. This allowed us to move quickly to identify and isolate positive cases on campus. As a result, we will be lifting some restrictions over the next few days.

Saturday, October 10:

  • The Dow and outdoor fitness center opened yesterday. Hours will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. today (Sunday) and Monday.

Monday, October 12:

  • All organized social and co-curricular activities will be restored as of 8 a.m.
  • Outdoor athletic fields will open on Monday at 8 a.m.
  • In-person student employment on campus and off-campus in approved businesses will be restored.
  • Visitors will be permitted again in outdoor spaces on campus. Students must register visitors using the visitor registration form on Together Safely.
  • Students can continue to request to travel off-campus using the off-campus travel form on Together Safely.

Tuesday, October 13:

  • Testing will take place for high-contact sports and varsity athletic activity will be restored. Modifications to practice plans may be in place and will be communicated to you by your head coach.
  • The Dow will return to normal hours of operation.

Students can also visit approved businesses in town and receive food by delivery to campus.

Our expectation that students monitor and report any symptoms both via the Aura app and to remains. At least one of the cases identified this week was through proactive symptom monitoring. This case should serve as a reminder of the part we all play in helping to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and protect our campus. The quicker that individuals identify symptoms and report them, the quicker we can respond, offer care and isolate where appropriate.

All of us must live the commitment we made, the Albion Community Commitment, in order to be successful. We are confident Brits can do this — and we look forward to a continued productive, fun, healthy and safe semester as we begin Module B. Have a great weekend.
