COVID-19 Health & Safety
- UMBC’s Public Health Dashboard was updated with new data on October 21. The dashboard provides timely data about the prevalence of COVID-19 within our main campus. There were no new positive cases during this reporting period.
How to Report a COVID-19 Case
- The COVID-19 Contact Response Team has provided additional guidance regarding COVID-19 case reporting. In the interest of community health and safety, anyone with knowledge that an individual on campus is COVID-19 positive is strongly encouraged to report this information through the COVID-19 Case Report Form. These reports will benefit both the health of the individual involved and the safety of our community. Reports will be handled in a manner consistent with federal privacy regulations.
Update on Spring 2021 Planning
- Based on feedback from our community and our desire to reduce screen time, we will not be hosting town halls related to spring planning. We encourage you to submit your questions, concerns, or feedback through our firstname.lastname@example.org inbox.
Protect Yourself with a Seasonal Flu Vaccine
- University Health Services (UHS) has a limited supply of seasonal flu vaccine remaining after last week’s campus flu clinic. Flu shots are available by appointment only at UHS on the ground floor of Erickson Hall for students, faculty, and staff approved to be on campus. We strongly encourage this vaccine during the COVID pandemic. Please see this CDC webpage for more information, and call UHS at 410-455-2542 to schedule your appointment. In addition, you can visit the UHS flu shot page for off-campus locations in the Catonsville-Arbutus area offering flu shots. Remember to call ahead to ensure the location you plan to visit has vaccines available.
Undergraduate Students: Participate in the Wake Forest Wellbeing Assessment
- Although classes and activities at UMBC are mostly held in virtual spaces during these unique times, the wellbeing of our students is more important than ever. UMBC is participating in the Wake Forest Wellbeing Assessment, which has been sent to undergraduate students between ages 18 and 25. By completing the assessment you will help us to better understand undergraduates’ needs and how we can be supportive. Check your UMBC email for the survey link. Forty students who complete the assessment will be randomly selected to receive a $25 virtual UMBC Bookstore gift card.
