Dear All,

As you may be aware, the number of COVID-19 cases in Montana and Beaverhead County has increased, as has the number of positive cases associated with UMW. Please be assured that, as planned, we have scaled up our response to meet these increases.

Our extensive preparations and planning are helping us do our part on campus and in the community to mitigate the spread. Teams are in place to test, contact-trace and ensure that all students and employees who are isolated or quarantined are getting what they need. Thank you to every single one of you for your contributions to these efforts.

We are nearing the end of the semester. Please stay the course. Wear masks. Distance. Wash your hands. Stay with your small groups. Avoid large groups.

Have a safe, healthy weekend.  We are almost there!

Chancellor Beth Weatherby
