Anonymous Q & A:

Good or bad, do you have any opinions on the UIS coronavirus response thus far?

Emily Albrecht

“I think it’s a good idea that they’re doing regular testing, and the refunds last semester were appreciated. Certainly a much better response than those of other schools, so I’m not complaining.”


“It’s ridiculous that they give us a test that takes over five hours to receive results from and then release us on campus. They have no way of tracking us in that time, and they give no restrictions on movement.”


“I’m not sure yet…I think we gotta go by the case numbers. If a lot of cases pop up in a few weeks, then it’s bad. If not, good.”


“It’s too early to tell.”
