Message from the Vice President for Student Affairs/COVID-19 Administrator
Happy new year to the NSU family. I hope you had a wonderful holiday and winter break. On behalf of the COVID Task Force, I wanted to share some important information and context as we prepare to keep our community safe and continue building the Culture of Care President Adams-Gaston has called all of us to do. 

On December 18, 2020, the University of Virginia released a COVID-19 infection model that projects if cases continue at their current rate. Virginia will see weekly confirmed cases peak at over 98,000 ending the week of February 7, 13 times higher than what we experienced this last summer. As of the writing of this letter, we continue to see rapidly rising COVID-19 test positivity rates across the state. While our goal is to have students back on campus in the spring, we all need to be flexible, as you were in the fall semester. The decision to move forward with bringing students back to campus will depend on the local conditions with COVID-19 as well as the state and federal directives that may be in place.

To promote health and safety in our campus community, NSU implemented a COVID-19 testing framework to provide testing for all students residing on campus as well as students that would be present on campus for academic, co-curricular, and employment purposes.
