Undergraduate Housing Updates for February 5th

Section 1

February 5, 2021

Hello Housing Residents!

Here are the important reminders for Week 5 of winter quarter:

  1. Stay the course! Campus guidelines for COVID-19 prevention continue as described below. 
  1. Gatherings are having a noted impact on quarantine numbers: While positive case numbers continue to trend downward, prohibited gatherings are resulting in a large number of quarantined students, currently at 94. Students from multiple communities and Zot Pods who were in contact with a COVID-positive peer, are later showing up positive, triggering new rounds of quarantines in their respective locations. Quarantine in your room (usually for 10 days) is a required public health measure if exposed, and also an experience most students would prefer to avoid. 

  2. Bottom line--Gatherings are prohibited, even during the Big Game Sunday, Lunar New Year, and Valentine’s Day: We understand the temptation to relax your guard for a special occasion that you want to enjoy with others. But please don’t let a ‘special day’ become the day you contract or spread the virus!
