Students advised of process for reporting COVID-19 results, reminded to submit vaccination status

Dear Students,

Allegheny County remains in the high-risk zone for community transmission, though case rates have decreased slightly this past week. Details may be found by clicking here. While campus rates remain low, concern about continued spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant calls for our collective preventative actions to maintain an open learning environment.
