Friday Futurecast : Health and safety update for university community members

Joan Ferrini-Mundy, Office of the President, University of Maine

Abstract/ Summary

Over the past two weeks, UMaine’s Emergency Operations Center has noted an upward trajectory of positive COVID-19 cases. This rate of rise exceeds that of the previous weeks and all but the most difficult period of the fall semester. Tracing efforts indicate there are multiple clusters of infected persons affecting different segments of the university community.
