Dear students,

There's a lot going on here to get ready for your return this fall: We're practicing the isolation and quarantine plan, doing deep cleaning and training our contact tracing teams.

Today's updates:

• If you are working or visiting the Founders area, please refrain from parking in spaces posted for Admissions visitors. On-campus visits have resumed.
