COVID-19 Cases Update from UHV President Bob Glenn

Dear UHV Students, Faculty and Staff,

We have learned that two staff members in Facilities have tested positive for COVID-19. Both of them are in quarantine. They were in direct contact with others who are not affiliated with UHV but had tested positive for the virus.

To the best of our knowledge, no other UHV faculty, staff or students had direct contact with the two employees, but contact tracing on campus is ongoing by the UHV COVID-19 Operations Center.

The first employee went into quarantine on July 1 and received a positive test July 4. The second employee went into quarantine on July 10 and got test results Thursday.

I will continue to provide information as more developments occur. The UHV Executive Committee is talking daily and meeting weekly to discuss the university’s status and how to best move forward to keep everyone healthy and safe. We previously had announced that the university would move to Phase 3 on Aug. 3 and will be sending out an email closer to that date as we make final decisions about our status.

On the university’s COVID-19 website, you can read more about prevention measures, what to do if you feel sick and the forms that should be filled out. This website is constantly being updated, and there is now a page about the UHV COVID-19 Operations Center. Please take some time to read through the information on this site.

Sincerely,
Bob Glenn
