Texas A&M-Commerce issued an alert to subscribers to the University’s Pride Alert Warning System about the rise of COVID-19 on campus over the last 14 days. They traced many new positive cases at the university to off-campus parties where social distancing practices were lax or non-existent. The Alert reinforced the CDC advisory that even those vaccinated need to continue wearing masks and practice social distancing.
Texas A&M-Commerce Alert Statement sent at 2:08 pm on April 13
During the previous 14-day period, there has been an upward trend in positive COVID-19 cases on the A&M-Commerce campus. This upward trend is in stark contrast to the downward trends over the same 14-day period in Hunt County and Texas.
They traced many new positive cases at A&M-Commerce to off-campus parties where social distancing practices were lax or non-existent. According to CDC recommendations, even vaccinated people should continue to wear face masks and practice social distancing. Although there appears to be an end in sight at the state level, we must remain vigilant for ourselves, our families, and our fellow Lions.
