Campus Update - Sept 24, 2021

We are still finalizing details for rapid testing for the Lakeland community. Until rapid testing details are available, people may still come on campus, but must complete the Daily Assessment.

If you have already submitted proof of having received at least one dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine or proof of a medical exemption, you are not required to complete the daily assessment to come on campus.

Please keep visiting this page for updates about rapid testing and other developments.
