What a stellar community!

Dear Allegheny College Campus Community,

Bravo, Gators! You have turned the recent uptick in cases into a bump in the road. Look at our numbers — rephrase — look at YOUR numbers:

  • 8 students tested positive today
  • 1 employee tested positive today
  • 82 students and 6 employees are currently isolating secondary to COVID-19. Most will be testing out in the next five days
  • 27 students tested out of isolation today
  • ZERO students have been hospitalized due to COVID-19.

Given the downslope in cases, the mask mandate will expire today at 5 p.m. Those who would like to keep masking are encouraged to do so. A big thank you to the nurses and volunteers who helped this week, including the many students at the Wise Center who just jumped in to open test kits, organize the line, and pack their friends’ personal items. What a stellar community. Nurses will be working all weekend to swab and visit those in isolation and Hooper will be driving students; feel free to thank them.

Nice work, Gators.

Dr. Morrow
