Influenza shot clinic announced on campus for students, faculty and staff as flu season commences

Dear Students,

Allegheny County continued to report daily COVID-19 case rates above 400, keeping the county in the high-risk zone for community transmission. Details may be found by clicking here. Campus rates remain low and have been positively impacted by continued student regard for a commitment to the welfare of those around them. Such will be critical to keeping an open learning environment.
