Daily Update

Weekly COVID-19 update

Reopening Operations Committee

Welcome back and Happy New Year!

We hope you all had a restful winter break. In our full update on the website, you'll find important health and safety reminders for the start of the new semester, including important guidelines for both employees and students, dining and housing information, building closures and more.

Employees who are able to perform their duties remotely must continue to do so and not come to campus unless absolutely necessary.

The semester will begin with a quiet period to mitigate the possible spread of the virus. For MBA and Law, this will take place Jan. 11–20. For CAS, the period will last Jan. 20–30. This means:

  • Attending classes remotely during the quiet period.
  • Reducing the number of people with whom you’re in contact.
  • Limiting traffic in campus buildings.
  • Avoiding social gatherings.

Thank you for supporting the health and safety of our campus and greater community and for your flexibility during these ever-changing and uncertain times.
