Show your wings of kindness an individual or get a group together and serve. Go to https://www.tntech.edu/volunteer/springbreak/ to sign up.
CDC offers current travel advice:
Travel increases your chances of getting and spreading COVID-19. CDC recommends that you do not travel at this time. Delay travel and stay home to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. Keep in mind that getting from one place to another is just one piece of the travel risk. Your activities and who you interact with before, during, and after travel may increase your risk. There’s even more to think about at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/travel-risk.html
Update on Putnam County vaccine distribution:
The Putnam County vaccine administration site has now changed to the Putnam County Fairgrounds. To be eligible, you must be in one of the categories listed at https://putnamcountytn.gov/vaccine. Those who fall into category 1c are now eligible.
Get tested for COVID-19 at Health Services:
You can get a free rapid test for COVID-19 at Health Services. Just give them a call at 372-3320.
To minimize risk to individuals and the public, Tennessee Tech University will comply with local, state and federal regulations and guidance from public health authorities. These measures may change, sometimes on short notice, as conditions change on and off our campus.
