While COVID-19 cases on campus remain low, the yellow alert reflects concern with higher COVID-19 levels in Middletown and Connecticut.  As a result, Wesleyan has asked students to avoid all unnecessary travel into the surrounding community. Because the positivity rate on campus remains quite low, no other campus restrictions are being imposed at this time.
