This is an employee t-shirt from the COVID-19 testing center at Merrimack College. It is a navy blue cotton t-shirt. The front (not pictured) says “Campus Health Ambassador.” The back of the t-shirt (pictured) includes three small images encouraging basic practices that helped to slow the spread of COVID-19 at Merrimack College and all around the country: masking, social distancing, and handwashing. The pictures on the back of the t-shirt could be used as reminders to everyone of what they should be doing to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and stay safe.
Established just prior to the fall semester of 2020, Merrimack College’s testing center not only was involved in testing everyone on campus for COVID-19, but also in helping to mitigate the spread of COVID -19 and promote health throughout campus. This shirt represents the testing center’s role in helping Merrimack be able to move forward with in-person classes and have students living on campus in a safe way.
