COVID-19 Information and Updates
Weekly COVID-19 Briefing 12/18/2020
December 18, 2020
Thank you for a successful Fall semester. Your commitment and sacrifice helped our community keep COVID at bay and prevented any campus spread of the virus! To God be the glory! Thank you for navigating all the requirements and changes with grace and a spirit of community care this semester. A special thank you to all employees who went above and beyond to care for our ENC community.
Planning for the Spring Semester
We continue to monitor rising cases of COVID in the Commonwealth and across the country. We are also keeping up-to-speed with state and local guidance to ensure our plans are consistent with regional health and safety expectations. Residential students received an important communication yesterday from firstname.lastname@example.org instructions related to Spring move-in. The email communicates specific move-in and testing information.
Because the cases per day number in December is nearly 20 times higher than it was in August, we are requiring all residential students to follow the testing protocols our students from high-risk states followed in the fall. This means all students will participate in “Test and Go”. Students will come to campus on their assigned day, complete their COVID 19 test and shelter off campus or at home until they receive their test results. See the email from the Housing Office for all the details. Please direct questions to email@example.com
We continue to update the website with timely information related to COVID-19 and institutional plans. Be sure to frequently check for new content and relevant updates at: https://enc.edu/opening-plans/
Wishing you and yours a sweet season of rest and celebration as you reflect on the miracle of Emmanuel, God with us. May the God of hope and peace make his presence known to you throughout the New Year!
Blessings to you on behalf of the Emergency Response Team,
