Updates & Announcements

Community Health Updates 

Increase in Respiratory Illnesses
Nationwide, we are experiencing a surge in respiratory illnesses including cold, flu, COVID-19, and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV). 

We strongly recommend the following:

  • wear a mask at indoor group settings and when you are in close contact with others
  • get updated flu and COVID-19 vaccinations, if you have not already done so
  • stay home if you are sick

As a reminder, if you test positive for COVID-19, report the case to contacttracing@pugetsound.edu.

COVID-19 Testing Updates
Our testing program will be changing with the start of the spring semester. Importantly, free rapid antigen tests will no longer be available on campus after January 23, 2023
After that date, all campus members should be prepared to supply their own rapid antigen tests, or use community testing sites. See the message link below for details.
