Please get yourself tested for COVID if you can.

I have good reason to believe that we may all have been exposed to COVID last week, and some students have tested positive. I’ll be doing a rapid test this morning, and I suggest that you all do the same if you’re able to. If you will be unable to come to the midterm on Thursday, please let me know as soon as possible.

The normal procedure when one or two students miss a midterm is to move its weight onto the final exam. If, however, a significant portion of the class is unable to write, I may need to come up with some sort of alternate arrangement. So, please test yourselves and let me know if ― for any reason ― you are medically prevented from writing the midterm.
