Our deepest thanks to the Screen, Test & Protect team

As outlined in yesterday’s Campus Brief, after 19 months of excellent work and leadership by infectious disease physicians, epidemiologists and disease investigators, the University of Florida is entering the next stage of pandemic management, effective Jan. 1. 

Our heartfelt gratitude goes to the UF Health Screen, Test & Protect team who rose to the challenge and expertly guided the University of Florida through the pandemic, helping to ensure the safety and health of our faculty, staff and students.
