Fellow Educators, 
 
This past week four members of the college community tested positive for COVID-19.  Those who may have been exposed have been notified to follow quarantine protocols. 
 
Although there are no updates to the Phase 1b of vaccine distribution information, we continue to wait for further guidance from the Department of Public Health and the CSCU System Office. In the meantime, I encourage everyone to review the information on the Vaccine Website, which includes information on the rollout plan and stages of vaccine distribution. All employees 75 years or older are encouraged to sign up now, and those 65 and older will be prioritized next. 
 
Incidents of Covid-19 infection and hospitalization are still increasing, and I caution everyone to remain diligent in following all safety precautions, and to make use of the COVID Alert CT app for identifying the possible risk of exposure.  With new strains beginning to appear in neighboring states, we must continue to wear masks, frequently wash hands, and always practice social distancing. All CSCU employees and students are also encouraged to take advantage of the state's no-cost COVID-19 testing. Find a test site near you. 
 
If you haven't already, I encourage everyone to become familiar with the following vaccine information resources: 
Thank you for your continued diligence in following safety protocols. 
 
Terry
