Dear UM Family,
We are writing to offer our congratulations on keeping Montevallo safe and healthy this fall semester!
We are very pleased that COVID-19 transmission in Shelby County has remained moderate over the past several weeks and our campus transmission rate has remained low for the majority of the semester. The extremely low number of current COVID-19 cases on campus is especially encouraging.
If community and campus COVID-19 rates remain low through the winter break, the University is planning for a mask-optional environment in the spring.
UM’s COVID-19 Task Force will continue to diligently monitor data regarding campus and community spread throughout the break in order to make determinations for the spring 2022 semester. Any necessary updates will be posted on the Falcon Forward 2021 webpage and communicated via UM.
Wishing everyone a joyous and restful winter break! See you on the bricks in January and thanks again!
John Stewart, III Tammi S. Dahle
