GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — Colorado Mesa University has successfully kept COVID cases down, using it’s resources to fight COVID on campus. Because the school’s “Mavily” unit system effectively tracks students’ 20 closest contacts to others with COVID-19 related status, it’s helped students continue to attend class in person.
While administrators are eager for students to enjoy the whole week of Thanksgiving Break, they also encourage students to follow smart health protocols on break to finish the semester strong and healthy.
“We do know that not mixing between Mav-ilies is one strategic way that we can continue to keep one another safe,” Colorado Mesa University’s Dr. Amy Bronson shares, “Some of the safety measures that we continue to keep in places limit the size of your gatherings, know who you’re gathering with, know if they’ve been exposed recently to COVID, certainly continuing to get tested, and then, also thinking about outdoor activities.”
After the thanksgiving leftovers are finished and students return for finals, COVID tests and vaccines will be available on campus after break, along with flu shots.
