July 30, 2020:
To the Muhlenberg Community,
Over the past several months our community has worked tirelessly to adapt to the ever changing conditions presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. I am proud of the strength of character our students, staff and faculty have shown during this time. Our priority in making decisions for the fall semester continues to be the health and safety of all members of our College community. Our planning has continually balanced the earnest desire of our students and families to responsibly return to campus with the uncontrollable conditions of COVID-19 that affect us all.
Our initial plan for the fall semester assumed a full return to campus. In my July 21 community message, I shared that the College was reviewing the viability of our plan in light of the significant surges in the virus across the country and the increases in infection rates among the college age population. The surge in cases in certain regions of our country has had an impact on our ability to open safely with a full population of students. Testing capacity has become unpredictable and limited, particularly for asymptomatic testing as we move into the early fall. As a result of this changing landscape, the College made the decision to reduce the number of students on campus to allow us to fully implement our health and safety protocols.
