Hi Josiah,

As you are aware, Brown’s IT security team identified a cybersecurity threat to the University’s Microsoft Windows-based technology infrastructure and preemptively shut down connections to our central data center and systems to protect the University’s digital resources. These measures are still in place and there is limited staff access to care platforms. Due to the security threat, all test results from the past 4 days have come back negative for everyone regardless of their actual result. If you are receiving this email, your test results were positive and we ask that you shelter in place starting immediately. We will be in contact with you shortly in regards to moving into one of the quarantine dorms. 

Best,

Team Healthy
