Register for flu clinics; Salmo meals to go
Friday, Oct. 2, 2020
At more than halfway to our goal of completing a successful fall semester on campus, we have made progress mitigating the risk of COVID-19 through an effective multi-prong strategy and sheer Bulldog determination. For this week, thanks in large part to the commitment of Bryant students, there is a 0.00% positivity rate out of 4,562 tests. What’s working so far:
  • Bryant’s close-knit community and culture of shared mission, that predated the pandemic but has become even stronger because of it.
  • Weekly rapid results testing for all students, faculty, and staff on campus. So far, we have conducted more than 32,000 tests.
  • Extensive contact tracing and quarantines as necessary to break any potential chain of transmission.
  • A beautiful campus where we can enjoy the fall weather in New England. This Saturday we begin Movie Nights Under the Lights at 6:30 p.m. on the scoreboard at Beirne Stadium.
  • Hybrid classes and faculty dedicated to student success and academic excellence.
Register for Student and Employee Flu Clinics
Getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever. The CDC believes it’s likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both be spreading and they have many symptoms in common. Getting a flu vaccine not only reduces your risk from flu and flu-related complications, but also helps conserve potentially scarce health care resources.
CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine, and Bryant Health Services strongly encourages all of our community members to get vaccinated for this year. There are multiple flu vaccination clinics conveniently located on campus. Students who have already gotten the flu vaccine are asked to let us know by updating the vaccination record in the Medicat portal.
Student flu vaccination clinics will be held in the MAC.
The dates and times for upcoming faculty and staff flu clinics are:
All faculty and staff flu clinics will be held in the Rotunda Mezzanine and are free to employees with BCBSRI and some other insurances. Employees will receive 1,000 wellness points.
Salmanson Meals to Go
You asked and we are responding. Starting this Monday, Salmanson Dining Hall began providing a “meal to go” option for all meals, seven days per week. Students should advise the server that their meal is “to go” and avoid waste by only taking what they are going to eat for a single meal. You can use multiple takeout containers if you are visiting multiple stations.
Paths to Recovery, Panel II
Restoring the Social Fabric: Opportunities and Challenges
On Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2020 at 3 p.m., this panel will explore social policy during periods of recovery from catastrophes and economic shock. Panelists will discuss the opportunities and challenges for individuals and organizations working to strengthen the social fabric in the current COVID-19-dominated landscape. What can they do themselves and where do they need help from official policymakers and government? What implications does this have for equity and inclusion in a diverse community? Register in advance for the Zoom link.

To help keep parents informed, Bryant held a series of Zoom panel discussions with President Ross Gittell, Provost Glenn Sulmasy, Vice President for Student Affairs Inge-Lise Ameer, and Vice President for Enrollment Management Michelle Cloutier. If you missed these, the videos are here.
