Fordham Forward | Five Things | November 24, 2020


From the Office of the Vice President for Administration:

Dear Members of the Campus Community:

Here are this week’s five things you need to know about Fordham’s COVID-19 precautions and University operations at the Thanksgiving break:

  • In the period from November 8 through 21, seventy-nine people in the University community tested positive for COVID-19.
  • The Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention strongly recommends you get a seasonal influenza (flu) vaccine now. The CDC expects the number of both flu and COVID-19 infections to rise over the winter months.
  • Though there are at least two promising vaccines in trials, the number of COVID-19 infections is still rising in 45 states. Read advice from four experts on how to have a safe Thanksgiving.
  • The University has published a schedule for testing and building closures from Thanksgiving to February 1, 2021.
  • The is the last edition of Five Things until the week of February 1, 2021. We wish you all a happy, healthy holiday season, and a great new year.

For more information, please see the COVID-19 Guidelines on the web.

Marco Valera
Vice President for Administration & COVID-19 Coordinator
