Standing Strong at UMFK: Spring 2022 COVID Update
March 14, 2022
Posted by: University of Maine at Fort Kent

Per UMS Chancellor Malloy's message sent on January 4th to address the fast-spreading Omicron variant, the pandemic's evolution demands that we take greater advantage of the extra protection that booster shots give us. Thus, in addition to our vaccination, exemption, and testing protocols from last semester, we'll be following new CDC guidance and, starting February 1, require regular testing for students who are not fully boosted by then. Returning residential students must also test and, unless they've had a booster shot or are very recently vaccinated, will be asked to quarantine to await negative test results for their initial test.
