Campus update for Oct. 30, 2020

Oct. 30, 2020

Wear your mask on Halloween!

Many traditional Halloween activities can be high-risk for spreading viruses, and COVID-19 numbers across the Midwest are rising.

Don't let up on safety. Wear your costume, but also wear your protective mask and keep your distance.

Celebrate with your usual small group of friends. Remember, keeping your circle of friends small can help limit your exposure and your ability to spread COVID-19 to others.

Please consider staying on campus.
