On May 5, President John Garvey sent a letter to the Catholic University community stating that it is his goal for the University to be fully open as quickly as is safely possible, and to "resume normal, in-person instruction" in the fall. He encouraged all students, faculty, and staff to get vaccinated.
"As we look forward to next fall, there are many reasons to hope we can resume many aspects of University life as we knew it pre-Covid," he said. "The rising vaccination rates have led to lower infection rates around the nation. We have conducted more than 8,400 tests this semester — and yielded a positive rate of about 0.7%."
