Students who miss multiple COVID-19 tests asked to leave campus

October 6, 2020

Effective Wednesday, October 7, students living on campus who miss a total of three COVID-19 tests will be asked to leave campus, according to an email from COVID-19 Resource Coordinator Mike Ranen sent to on-campus students today.

First-year students asked to leave will also need to drop their in-person seminar classes.

Ranen clarified that this three-strikes policy was being implemented in response to large numbers of students continuing to miss their testing appointments.

“We cannot afford to rest on our laurels and become complacent, as doing so would compromise the success we have enjoyed so far in managing COVID-19 on our campus,” Ranen wrote.

    This is just common cents. And courtesy. I skipped a rugby match because I had a contagious rash and I cancelled a dental appointment when I had oral gonorrhea. Just stay away from class for a week or two if you have covids. It is not the problem some people want you to believe.
