President Morton Schapiro Tests Positive for COVID-19

Dear members of the Northwestern community,

I want to share with you the news that I tested positive for COVID-19 last night.

I’m fully vaccinated and boosted and am taking the recommended precautions per CDC and University guidelines. Accordingly, I’ve canceled a trip today to New York as well as tomorrow’s New York Will. Celebrate event for alumni and friends.

I’m resting comfortably with moderate symptoms and gratitude for caring family and friends and effective vaccines. I encourage everyone to keep up to date on boosters and take other precautions as necessary as we continue to care for one another.
