Dear 学生s, Faculty, and Staff,

Utah has moved to an endemic phase of the 新型冠状病毒肺炎 pandemic.

  • 新型冠状病毒肺炎 vaccination is strongly encouraged but no longer required to attend 爱博登录页面. 疫苗接种s are available through the Utah County Health Department and traditional providers.
  • Free at-home test kits are available at 学生 Health Services, 人力资源, and 校园连接. These are distribution-only sites, and t在这里 will not be anyone available to answer COVID-related questions. You can find answers on the 疾病预防控制中心网站 or by contacting your healthcare provider.
