Update on Employee Testing and Vaccine Planning

Updated January 21, 2021

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to provide you with important updates on COVID testing and vaccines. Please review this information carefully and contact me with any questions. 

Employee COVID testing for January 25 and 26 will be held in Rivers from 8:30 am -4:30 pm. This is a change in location. 

When your COVID tests results are available, you will be notified through your Western New England University email. The email you receive will come from CareEvolve@LKNotification.com. You will be sent a registration email first, once you register you will be sent a second email with a link to your results.  Employees tested last Friday began to receive their results on Saturday. 

Western New England University has applied to be a COVID vaccine location in Massachusetts.  Currently, the University has not been approved or named as a vaccine location. Governor Baker announced a pharmacy and hospital partnership for vaccinations that will significantly increase the number of vaccinations sites in Massachusetts during the week of January 25, 2021.  Employees who have the opportunity to be vaccinated should not wait for the University to become a named vaccination site.  The University is developing a COVID vaccine policy which will be published on or before February 12, 2021.
