University Monitoring Omicron Variant
The University is very grateful for the collaborative efforts of students, faculty and staff to ensure the health and safety of the Duquesne community. The noteworthy compliance with our Vaccine Policy has resulted in a very low spread of COVID-19 and a small number of positive cases, and we urge you to continue your vigilance with masking and other safety precautions.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has shared news and concern of the new Omicron variant. This variant has now been detected in the United States, so your diligence and commitment to Duquesne's safety protocols remain paramount.
The University is monitoring all information on the evolving situation with the Omicron variant. Per guidance from the Allegheny County Health Department and other health officials, the best safety practice remains acquiring full COVID vaccination and a booster six months after the initial vaccination.
Please, do your part stay safe as we head into finals and toward the end of the semester.
