Isolation Spaces, 5C Dining and 5C Parties/Events

Dear Mudders,

We have had an uptick in COVID-19 cases this week and have exhausted all of our isolation spaces.  As a result, we anticipate that if we have more cases tomorrow, we will need students who test positive to remain in their residence hall rooms/suites, where DSA staff will be able to check on them and deliver meals.

When students have to isolate in place, they will be asked to wear a medical-grade mask in their space. Meals will be delivered (breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner, beverages, and snacks). If students are expecting important packages, we will work with them to get them delivered. We will also place cleaning supplies in community/suite bathrooms for students to use.

If you live in Drinkward Os or Case Ls, a bathroom for students isolating in place will be designated and labeled for students who are in isolation to use.  These bathrooms will be cleaned more frequently as well.

Also, as a result of a rise in cases throughout the consortium:

  • Cross campus dining will be suspended until further notice.
  • All 5C parties and events will also be suspended until further notice.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate this ongoing pandemic.


Dean Marco
