The note reads:


Good afternoon, Nicholls family!

Allison, Caroline and I have all tested positive for COVID-19. We are exhibiting mild symptoms, but are otherwise feeling well. We want to thank everyone who has reached out to us with concern. The warmth of the Nicholls family and the Bayou Region is what makes us feel at home.

For the next two weeks, we will self isolate here at home to not spread the virus. Please wear a mask, wash your hands and practice social distancing.

Dr. Jay Clune
Nicholls President

P.S. Boots Clune appears to be fine.
