SEMO relaxes COVID-19 policies, contact tracing
The Cape Girardeau Public Health Center will cease contact tracing COVID-19 cases at Southeast Missouri State University, according to a Jan. 11 email from university President Carlos Vargas. The press release outlines reduced precautions and continuation of Fall 2021 regulations.
Masks will still be required in classrooms, shuttles, the University School for Young Children and the Campus Health Clinic, similar to the Fall 2021 plan. Face covering policies will be reviewed on Feb. 18, the email states.
According to the press release, faculty members will not be notified of COVID-19 cases in their classes. On-campus students are permitted to isolate in Dearmont Hall.
The email states, “if you test positive or exhibit systems of COVID-19, you are still encouraged to isolate from others.” In addition, the COVID-19 Dashboard data will be removed from Southeast’s website.
Vaccination clinics are scheduled for Jan. 19, Feb. 16 and April 20. For more information, view the Protect the Nest Plan on Southeast’s website.
