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 this fall:
- In the period from September 29 through October 12, eleven people in the University community tested positive for COVID-19.
- The greatest potential source of new infections in the Fordham community is student gatherings without appropriate social distancing nor face coverings. Protect yourself, your friends, and the community by taking COVID-19 precautions seriously.
- The rate of infections in New York City has been increasing, including “red zones” in Brooklyn and Queens in which the positive test rate on October 12 was 4.13 percent. If you travel in the city, please do take care to maintain appropriate social distancing, and wear a mask.
- Last week, the University announced the modified academic calendar for the spring semester: members of the University community should again expect mandatory COVID-19 testing to enter campus, and throughout the balance of the academic year.
- You should schedule your mandatory COVID-19 tests for October and November now, while many slots are still open.
For more information, please see the COVID-19 Guidelines on the web.
Vice President for Administration & COVID-19 Coordinator
