As COVID-19 cases bump up, Dean reminds students to take precautions

Dear Students,

The Allegheny County COVID-19 positivity rates continue to trend upward. While case rates on campus remain low, we are seeing reports of new exposures and symptoms that warrant testing. The Pittsburgh area remains in the “low” CDC community level category. Details on the “County View” may be found by clicking here.

As you end finals week, here is additional important information for you to know.
