Dear JMU Family,

Update on Cases
The university observed 0 new positive cases of COVID-19 at the University Health Center yesterday. With 1 case considered “recovered,” the total number of active cases is now at 6. The number of open quarantine and isolation beds is 384 out of 391. More information can be found on the university’s Stop the Spread dashboard.

Vaccines are Here
The local Central Shenandoah Health District has moved into Phase 2, which means that vaccines are now available to anyone ages 16 and older.

The Virginia Department of Health website has updated information on available vaccination clinics. If you are in need of either first-dose clinics or second-dose clinics, please register using those links. They will be updated regularly as new clinics become available. Walk-in appointments may be available depending upon vaccine supply.

If you are in need of a second dose of either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine in another area of the state, VDH has a site for finding a vaccine clinic in Virginia. VaccineFinder is also helpful in locating vaccine clinics both in and outside of Virginia.
