Today’s Alerts

January 22, 2021 

Whether you’re on campus or learning remotely, we hope the first week of classes gets you excited for a successful semester. Phase 1 students are now back on campus, and it’s time to kickstart our community COVID prevention efforts once again. We all know how it works. We’re wearing our masks everywhere but in our own rooms or offices. We’re maintaining social distance at all times. We’re not gathering in groups. And we’re washing our hands with hot water and soap for at least 20 seconds, or grabbing that hand sanitizer frequently.

A strong start to the semester is the best way to ensure a strong finish. So let’s Start Strong Stay Strong, and we’ll get there together.

Note: We have bumped the dashboard up to Level II, in recognition of the high levels of transmission in the communities and counties around Saint Joe’s. Raising the level should remind us that when we are off campus, we must be extra cautious about our personal exposure to others, whether we’re at the store, picking up dinner or coffee, visiting family, or anywhere else. Thank you for remaining vigilant as cases in Maine continue to peak.
