Office of the President

As the holidays approach, it is important to remember that we should take precautions to protect ourselves and our loved ones. This includes continuing to social distance when possible, wearing a recommended face covering when indoors around large groups of people, and receiving a COVID-19 vaccine or booster. With developing news of the Omicron COVID-19 variant, everyone needs to get vaccinated or get a booster.
