ADVISING CORNER
COVID TESTING
Students – I’d like to highlight a portion of Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Laurie Bellows’s message that was sent to you on 11/10/20. This message includes important messaging about Covid testing and traveling home during the break. In her letter Bellows wrote: “Looking beyond final exams, I know many students will choose to return home to spend the break with friends and family. Please take the following precautions before you leave: Get a COVID-19 test before leaving the Lincoln-area to avoid unknowingly bringing COVID-19 home to your family or friends. Free testing will be available beginning Monday, Nov. 16. More-

From January to October 2020 the United State experienced 16 weather/climate events which resulted in more than $1 billion in damages each!

The field of planning serves as the foundation for saving lives, protecting economic investments and building stronger more resilient communities.
