Spring Break: Be Safe

Dear Truman Community:

Spring break is a time of rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation.  During a pandemic, it must also be a time of regard – regard for one’s own health and the health of others and regard for the very important and impactful experiences that will happen after spring break.

Over 900 seniors will be completing their undergraduate collegiate experience; hundreds of musicians, vocalists, and actors will be performing; hundreds of student-athletes will be competing; and thousands of students will be engaging in meaningful in-person curricular and co-curricular experiences that cannot be replicated virtually.

Please do not let them down by making choices that put our community at risk.  It takes each and every one of us remaining vigilant in our own COVID-19 mitigation behaviors to ensure we have a fantastic second half of our semester.  Let’s do it for each other!

Have a wonderful and safe spring break,

Be safe. Whatever your spring break plans, keep them safe. Wear a mask (or two). Avoid crowds. Wash your hands. Stay home if sick. Quarantine and/or get tested before leaving/returning.
