Good Practices Keep COVID Cases Down


In their weekly meeting, Faculty Senate COVID-19 Working Group committee members Nancy Daley-Moore and Scott Alberts discussed case numbers, vaccines and maintaining best practices.

Cases attributed to Truman were down again for the week of Feb. 23. Daley-Moore and Alberts also mentioned vaccine clinics are occurring with more frequency, and Hy-Vee and Walmart will have increased availability in the coming weeks and months. Anyone interested in receiving a vaccine should inquiry about getting on a list with a provider so they can be ready when doses are available.

Although more people are receiving the vaccine, it is important for everyone, even those who have received both doses, to follow safe practices until herd immunity is achieved. This includes maintaining a social distance, washing hands regularly and wearing a mask. With exceptions for private residence hall rooms and offices, masks should be worn at all times in campus buildings.
