To the Ole Miss Pharmacy Phamily:
As we prepare for our return (date to be determined) to the Ole Miss campus, we are working diligently to facilitate a smooth transition. Although many aspects have continued online, being together in the classroom, on fall Saturdays, throughout our research spaces and at our favorite local places is what the Ole Miss community is about.
Our Executive Council is actively developing various courses of action, using different scenarios as guidelines consistent with university guidance. We don’t have all the answers yet, but we will do what is needed to ensure the safety of everyone on our campuses.
To date, fall 2020 plans are unchanged with classes starting as scheduled, though everything depends on the public health situation over the coming months. If any changes occur, you will be notified by university and School of Pharmacy leadership through your university-issued email accounts.
Before any final decisions are made, the most important factor to consider is the health of everyone. Please continue to follow all the guidelines and know what to do if you develop symptoms such as fever, cough and/or difficulty breathing, or have been in contact with a person known to have COVID-19.
- Stay home and call your primary health care provider. At this time, your health care provider will determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19 based on Mississippi Department of Health guidelines.
- Faculty and staff in Oxford should contact Employee Health for additional evaluation and information.
- You can also contact Baptist Memorial Hospital’s 24-hour hotline for additional information at 866-941-4785.
- For those in Jackson, call the UMMC employee/student hotline at 601-496-6284.
There are still many uncertainties in our path. However, with forward thinking and innovative, detailed planning, we will emerge “stronger together.”
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay well, and we will see you soon!
