2/7/22 | Good News & Thanks from Dr. Elizabeth True

Dear Mariners,

This weekend marks one month since our return to campus this semester. Thanks to your continued diligence, case numbers are beginning to decline (only six active cases today) while booster vaccination rates continue to climb.

To celebrate this good news, MMA will relax health and safety protocols in several areas:

  • Beginning Monday, seating in the Main Dining Hall will return to normal and seating at tables will no longer be limited
  • Spectators will be allowed at home competitions
  • Annual in-person events like Ring Dance and the Change of Command Ceremony are being planned to incorporate traditional elements
  • Contact tracing will focus only on unmasked interactions

Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do. Together, we have proven time and time again that our community can meet and overcome the challenges presented by COVID-19.

With great pride and gratitude,

Dr. Elizabeth True
Vice President for Student Affairs
