President Ambar updates the community on Oberlin’s COVID-19 situation, followed by David Covell of the Lorain County Health Department, who answers these questions:
Oberlin has a total campus vaccination rate of 97.4 percent. What level of testing is necessary on a highly vaccinated campus? Is testing recommended for individuals returning to campus from breaks or travel?
Although we had a recent cluster of cases, there were no hospitalizations and the spread was contained. What factors contributed to this?
What do we know about the Omicron variant and what are the concerns?
If an individual is symptomatic, what measures should they take? How do you slow the spread of COVID?
As it becomes clear that COVID is not going away, how do we adjust our thinking to cope with it in the long term?
