COVID-19 Update: 0+0 Cases; Verification Push

Dear Campus Community,

For the second week in a row, we have no recorded active COVID cases on campus.  Hooray! This could be the start of something great, but we still recommend vigilance to keep our campus safe.

We’re nearing the end of the verification incentive process, so if you haven’t done it yet, please do. You can click the link below or stop by the appropriate office with a physical copy of the card. That office can also help you if you’ve lost your vaccine card.

Students can click here to upload their vaccination cards or stop by the Health Center.

Faculty and Staff can click here, or stop by Human Resources.

For both processes the deadline is this coming Monday, November 1.

Once we have that data, the campus will be evaluating our mask policy for the rest of the semester. Having a high percent of the campus verified as vaccinated will allow us to consider more options moving forward.

Adair County has several opportunities for both the COVID and flu vaccine, this week and next. See this link for more details and how to sign up.

We also expect more opportunities at Truman before the end of the semester, and you can still visit local pharmacies, some of which have incentives for getting vaccinated there.


Although we aim these updates at our faculty and the campus community, please do share this information or the video with students in your classes, with parents, and elsewhere. This information is shared with all students via their COVID Blackboard page, sent directly to all Truman faculty and staff, and shared on our public web page here:
