COVID-19 Weekly Update - week ending 9/17/21

Covenant Community:  Thank you for your vigilance this past week in masking and distancing.  These behaviors coupled with self-quarantining when you are symptomatic and going to get tested right away are crucial to slowing transmission on campus. 
 
We are encouraged to see only 12 new cases this week after 25 last week.  We currently have 4.7% of the student body in isolation (infection) or quarantine (exposure) down from 8% last week.  This number actually drops to 3.6% tomorrow after 11 more students come out of isolation and four come out of quarantine. 
 
If we continue this trend next week, we will look to move back to the prior masking requirement which was limited to chapel, indoor home athletic events, classrooms, and other indoor instructional spaces.  
 
Of our 62 positive cases since August 16, 25.8% have been vaccinated.  Vaccinated or not, please continue to do the responsible thing and stay away from others when you become sick and call Health Services at 706.419.1275 to set up a free rapid test in the Health Center.
