COVID-19

Update Related to COVID-19 from UHV Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Chance Glenn

Dear UHV Students, Faculty and Staff,

I wanted to let everyone know that an additional staff member in Facilities has tested positive for COVID-19 and is in quarantine. The employee went into quarantine Tuesday and got a positive test result Wednesday.

Early this month, we announced that two other staff members in Facilities also had tested positive and were in quarantine.

The UHV Executive Committee continues to discuss the university’s status in its Phased Reopening Plan and how to best move forward to keep everyone healthy and safe. The university will remain in Phase 2 until at least Aug. 10. I will send out more information as it becomes available.

Please continue to refer to the university’s COVID-19 website, where you can read more about prevention measures and get answers to your frequently asked questions. A Coronavirus Self-Checker from the Centers for Disease Control is now available and has been added as a blue button on the bottom of the COVID-19 homepage.

Sincerely,
Dr. Chance M. Glenn, Sr.
