Broadening Our Approach

COVID-19 remains with us, but unlike at the start of other quarters, we have effective interventions and treatments. Current dominant variants are also less severe—with fewer hospitalizations and deaths. With high vaccination rates, over 95% on campus, we are seeing more individuals take personal responsibility for their health and the health of others. As the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) guidance shifted oversight of the health and wellbeing of people back to individuals, the University's role is evolving to support personal responsibility. This shift allows DU to focus on other public health challenges like mental healthsuicide prevention, and monkeypox readiness.
