To the Brown Community: Planning Around COVID-19 Omicron Variant
Dear Brown Community Members,

As we prepare for a new year and a new semester during this global pandemic, many members of our community have questions about the University’s plans for the Winter Session and Spring 2022 semester. We are writing to share how data on the emergence of the Omicron variant is guiding the approach we plan to take.

As we explain in more detail below, we do not anticipate any significant changes to University operations or activities in the coming weeks. Information on the Omicron variant indicates that the steps the University is already taking — requiring vaccinations and boosters for all members of our community, and maintaining an indoor mask mandate and following other public health measures — are effective at preventing serious illness, which is our primary goal.

Through the diligence of our community, we are fortunate that we are in a much stronger place than a year ago, when we experienced the first winter coronavirus surge. The combination of vaccinations and boosters and all that we have learned about COVID-19 provide the tools that we need to maintain our core mission of teaching and research while also protecting the health and safety of the Brown community and reducing the chances of severe illness and hospitalization.

We recognize that, in the coming weeks, members of our community may experience disruptions due to school closures or the need to care for ill family members. Accordingly, we are adding additional scope for flexibility in the weeks ahead to help employees manage these issues.

** details follow **

Browns data and fact driven approach to keeping their campus open and in-person may not allow their winter and spring athletics to continue ... if the rest of the league shuts down sports.
