Indiana University President Pamela Whitten announced Thursday, in an e-mail, testing positive for COVID-19.
Here is the text of the e-mail:
“Dear IU Community,
Just now I learned that while fully vaccinated for many months, I have tested positive for COVID-19. I began experiencing mild cold symptoms this morning and immediately isolated myself. I got tested shortly thereafter and received the results a few moments ago.
Gratefully, my symptoms are mild, and I will continue to work and lead the university during this time from my home office.
While the vaccine is not 100% effective, I am so grateful to be protected from more serious symptoms.
I encourage everyone to get vaccinated as soon as you can.
I look forward to being back in the office soon and to seeing all of you on campus for the fall semester.
