To emphasize our main actions to mitigate transmission on campus, PLEASE:
1. DO NOT come to campus if you are sick.
2. Report your exposures and illnesses as soon as possible through the online

In addition to COVID-19, the monkeypox virus is an emerging concern. Monkeypox is a rare disease caused by infection with the monkeypox virus. Monkeypox virus is part of the same family of viruses as variola virus, the virus that causes smallpox. Monkeypox symptoms are similar to smallpox symptoms, but milder, and monkeypox is rarely fatal.
