SARASOTA, Fla — “Families are needing and wanting their holiday traditions, but that is going to likely lead to the spread more,” Dr. Anne Fisher said.

Fisher is the program director of counseling and wellness and the lead COVID-19 response coordinator for New College of Florida. Right now, she and her team are preparing for students and staff who want to head home for the holidays.

“It’s going to be a tough one for everybody I think this year,” Fisher said.

To help limit the spread this Thanksgiving, New College is offering free coronavirus testing to students and staff. Staff testing will be held at the Sainer Fine Arts Campus from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
