He said that his symptoms have been body aches, chills, light fever, and fatigue. The president is thankful that his symptoms are not more severe, possibly because he is fully vaccinated.

Sands also mentioned that all safety protocols are still being followed on campus through close contact tracing and testing.  He also urges students who are not yet vaccinated to get the vaccine to prevent others from contracting Covid.
