Great news from the SWOSU campus: For the first time since summer 2020, there are zero active COVID-19 cases reported by the administration.


After 3 and 5 cases during the past two weeks, it is unlikely that SWOSU will experience another spread of COVID-19 - and there are three reasons for that:


First: With every new wave of COVID-19 cases at SWOSU, the amount of students, faculty, and staff who got tested positive got lower. Now we have 0 cases - and it is likely that this trend will continue and only few students will get COVID during the remainder of the semester.


Second: Many people already received their vaccination, among them many SWOSU students. Oklahoma just announced the entering of phase 3, that means all students can now get an appointment to get vaccinated. So far, more than 16% of Oklahomans have at least received one dose.


Third: A significant amount of the student body has already had COVID-19 at some point, and some develop immunity, at least for some time.
