COVID 19 UPDATE

President Chillo’s Covid-19 Update | Jan. 24, 2022

Thomas More University currently has 28 positive cases (1.8% of our on-campus population), 20 fewer cases than last week. We have 42 individuals in quarantine, 31 fewer than last week, three of whom are on campus. We remain in the Low Alert threshold.

As a reminder, we are gradually returning additional courses to in-person by Monday, January 31.

  • All courses with enrollment of fewer than 20 students that shifted to an online or hybrid format at the start of the spring semester will resume in-person by Monday, January 31, unless classroom space is not conducive to do so. If so, a faculty member may decide to resume in-person instruction on Monday, February 7.
  • Classes with enrollments of 20 or more that shifted to an online or hybrid format at the start of the spring semester will resume in-person by Monday, February 7.
  • Faculty members may decide to resume in-person classes earlier than these dates.
  • Faculty members will notify their classes via Canvas of when they will resume in-person.

In addition, our resident students may now have visitors in the residence halls according to Residence Life procedures.

We held another successful vaccination clinic last week in partnership with Ludlow Pharmacy. Thirty- nine faculty, staff, and students received a Pfizer vaccine. For those who would like to get vaccinated or boosted, more information is available at www.vaccines.gov. Once complete, please submit your record through MyTMU.

As you may have heard, all residential households in the U.S. can now order a set of 4 free at-home tests. Use this link to order your kits. I encourage you to place an order for your household.

We will continue to monitor the situation to ensure we protect the health and safety of our community. Please continue to do your part in keeping yourself, your family, and our community healthy and safe.
