Marquette encourages campus community to take COVID-19 precautions during Easter Break

Marquette is encouraging members of the campus community planning to travel for Easter Break (April 14-18) to take public health precautions to prevent illness, including being mindful of gathering size. While overall COVID-19 case numbers are declining, community spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, continues throughout the United States and many other countries.

The CDC’s new COVID-19 Community Levels recommendations do not change current travel requirements, including the requirement to wear masks on public transportation and indoors in U.S. transportation hubs. Travel anywhere outside one’s own community, domestically or internationally, over Easter Break may increase your risk of contracting COVID-19. Check your destination’s COVID-19 situation before traveling. It is recommended that travel be delayed if you are not up to date on COVID vaccination.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms, self-isolate and get tested, regardless of your vaccination status or a previous infection. Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 should self-disclose.
