Like our mandatory testing, screening and contact tracing programs, flu vaccinations represent an important and common-sense public health measure – one in which we all can, and should, participate during this challenging time.
The Fayette County School Board announced last night that it will continue at-home or non-traditional instruction (NTI) as the primary mode of learning for most students in public schools until the winter break.
Our data suggest that members of our community are making good decisions and looking out for each other’s safety. This week, we hit the ten-day mark of active cases on our campus remaining consecutively under 200.
According to CDC guidance, “everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine every season with rare exceptions. Vaccination is particularly important for people who are at high risk of serious complications from influenza.”
Because of you, we’re seeing the number of COVID-19 active cases on our campus decline. I want to say thank you for everything you are doing; I want you to know how proud I am of this community for keeping each other healthy.
