During the College’s spring break last week, the Utah Jazz held a practice in the College’s gym. Emerson has determined that two coaches had minimal contact with the team at that time and public health officials have assured the College that they are not at risk. Even though these coaches are healthy and not restricted at all, the College has asked them to self monitor.
When professional teams use college facilities, access to the gym is restricted; furthermore, the practice occurred when much of our student body was away from campus. In addition, the College continues to take every precaution to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our community, including more frequent and targeted disinfection of facilities and surfaces (https://www.emerson.edu/covid-19/faq#accordion-4329 ), which began the day before the practice and continue on a daily basis.
