This winter the Omicron variant upended many health and safety plans on college campuses nationwide. As Covid-19 continues to mutate, testing, isolation, and contact-tracing guidelines will need to evolve along with it. What’s next for how colleges manage the ever-changing pandemic?
A panel of campus health officials will gather for a virtual forum, “Changing Campus Covid Protocols,” to discuss how the rest of the semester could unfold and how protocols could develop as the pandemic moves into an endemic phase. Join us as we look ahead and consider such questions as:
- How are colleges revisiting their existing Covid protocols in the wake of the winter’s Omicron surge?
- What policies are being modified in response to the current situation?
- What policies from the early part of the pandemic are now being discarded?
