“Pitt’s COVID-19 Medical Response Office encourages everyone to avoid high-risk activities as much as possible, such as spending time indoors unmasked with anyone symptomatic or unvaccinated or gathering in large, unmasked groups”
Why does the University of Pittsburgh think this is any of their business?
Campus Reform reports:
Happy Thanksgiving? Students told to ‘avoid’ being inside ‘unmasked’ around ‘unvaccinated’ people during holiday.
The University of Pittsburgh recently published an article on the school’s website titled “What Pittsburgh students need to know before Thanksgiving break.”
The Nov. 17 article breaks down topics about Thanksgiving activities, what to do if you plan on staying on campus, and how to continue being COVID cautious over the holiday season.
Under the COVID-related section of the Nov. 17 article, titled “Time off from school doesn’t mean time off from COVID-19 safety measures,” the school openly urges students to “avoid” being inside around unvaccinated people.
“Pitt’s COVID-19 Medical Response Office encourages everyone to avoid high-risk activities as much as possible, such as spending time indoors unmasked with anyone symptomatic or unvaccinated or gathering in large, unmasked groups,” the article reads.
According to the article, vaccinated students are all set to enjoy their time with family and friends, unless they are unmasked or unvaccinated, of course. However, vaccinated Pittsburgh students must still take precautions.
“If you are fully vaccinated and asymptomatic, there is no need to test before and after traveling, but please remember to comply with all other mitigation measures, including masking at all times in transit and maintaining good hand hygiene.”
Unvaccinated students must take extra precautions on top of wearing masks and washing their hands, which includes submitting a negative COVID test over the holiday break.
