Dear Davis & Elkins College community,
As the first week of planned course delivery comes to a close, we remain hopeful on the campus of Davis & Elkins College. We are pleased with the small number of positive COVID-19 cases on campus, as well as the manner in which positive cases were handled and screening and testing procedures have been managed for the D&E community. It is D&E’s intention to proceed with course delivery on campus for the foreseeable future. However, the ability to provide courses through in-person and hybrid formats on campus is solely dependent upon your diligence. Ultimately, campus health and wellness is a shared responsibility.
COVID-19 testing: D&E statistics continue to be reassuring
As of the writing of this update, there are no active COVID-19 cases on the D&E campus. There is no question that is attributable to careful and diligent behavior by students, faculty, staff, and administration. Thus far, the incidence of positive cases in students is 0.87%, far below trending levels. The incidence among D&E employees is 0.28% and the incidence for campus as a whole is 0.68%. What we’re doing is working!
A required temperature monitoring system will continue for anyone entering the Benedum Dining Room. Commuter students and visitors to campus must undergo mandatory screening at the D&E campus entrance, and faculty and staff are screened daily. Anyone leaving campus outside of their designated commuter zone will be required to undergo COVID-19 screening/testing, as outlined in the Davis & Elkins College Guide for Returning to Campus:
As college campuses across the nation fall prey to careless and reckless behavior related to COVID-19, D&E students are reminded of continued enforcement of COVID-19 safety protocols. Simply put, these are special protocols put in place on our campus regarding behaviors related to the COVID-19 global pandemic and steps we can take on the D&E campus to help prevent the spread of the virus.
You can help our College continue to have on-campus instruction by making good choices and adhering to safety protocols. House/suite parties, going to bars, and gathering in large groups will likely increase the community spread of COVID-19 and decrease the likelihood that we are back to normal anytime soon. Negative behaviors that could harm our community cannot be tolerated. Violations of the Davis & Elkins College Code of Conduct will be processed in accordance with the discipline policy (sanctions range from/include fines, residence hall suspension, and expulsion).
