Penn State To Host COVID-19 Response Town Hall August 3

Penn State will host yet another virtual town hall this week to discuss the university’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic as the fall semester quickly approaches.

President Barron will host the hour-long event, which will stream online at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, August 3. He’ll be joined by other administrators like Vice President of Student Affairs Damon Sims and Kelly Wolgast, the director of Penn State’s COVID-19 Operations Control Center.

According to a release, the panel will discuss COVID-19’s delta variant, changes in on-campus health policies for the fall, and Penn State’s approach to the academic year.

The university’s newly announced town hall comes just days after student and faculty groups demanded Penn State take greater action against COVID-19 this fall.

To date, Penn State has not required COVID-19 vaccinations for students and employees. Only unvaccinated individuals need to wear masks and socially distance indoors on campus, but that policy is nearly impossible to actually enforce.

More information on Penn State’s current COVID-19-related policies is available online.
