Dean Scott: At the moment there is not a plan to do that but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a plan to do so. There has been a sense of let’s wait and see. Many of you probably don’t follow the news, COVID numbers are climbing. In the past few weeks, it is really trending up again. You can look at those numbers yourself. With that being said, Dr. Morgan has said we will need to evaluate what it is like in January.
VP Murphy: Regardless of the numbers of cases, the polices enacted, have been a constant since March. It is not possible to move 1,300 people in on one day. Since March there is a disconnect. It shouldn’t have been announced. Regardless of our polices they haven’t changed. Especially considering a lot of us are traveling form out of states.
Dean Scott: What is normal?
VP Murphy: Two days or three days. Since we are following normal procedure.
Senator Anderson: Considering that it is a higher risk can we get some info on the matter?
Dean Scott: I thought it was the same amount of time you always received. The reason why it was different from the fall is because there were a greater number of families coming to move, because it is just over break there is less stuff moving in and out. I recognize it’s not the same of going to McDonald’s and coming back.
VP Murphy: Does this include students coming into the state?
Senator Gonzalez: What would the logistics of testing the students look like?
Dean Scott: There is not a plan to test students.
