IU President Pamela Whitten announced in an email Thursday that she has tested positive for COVID-19 after experiencing “mild cold symptoms” Thursday morning.
“Gratefully, my symptoms are mild, and I will continue to work and lead the university during this time from my home office,” Whitten wrote in the email.
Whitten said in the email that she is fully vaccinated, and isolated herself when she began experiencing symptoms. Whitten also stated that she is grateful to be protected from more serious symptoms as a result of the vaccine while encouraging others to get vaccinated.
“I look forward to being back in the office soon and to seeing all of you on campus for the fall semester,” Whitten wrote.
