Weekly Testing Update - March 4, 2021

Dear FSU Community,

The University administered 752 COVID19 tests on Monday and Tuesday this week, resulting in two positives. Contact tracing of close contacts began immediately. All of our latest data is now viewable on our COVID19 Dashboard.

With cases gradually dropping across the Commonwealth, and Governor Baker loosening some restrictions in Massachusetts, I again want to remind everyone of the importance of being vigilant and maintaining a high level of caution, as we have throughout the pandemic. Believe me, I understand how tempting it is to start to let down our guard, but cases remain at high levels and new, more contagious variants of COVID19 are spreading throughout the country.

As always, keep wearing your masks, practicing good hygiene and social distancing, and avoiding large gatherings. Monitor your health daily, and if you are showing any symptoms, no matter how mild, you should contact the Health Center.

Stay safe,
