Coronavirus and Important Changes to Our Operations for the Remainder of the Semester
March 11, 2020
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, presents our world, country and University with a unique public health challenge that is all the more disquieting because of the uncertainties associated with its spread. We write today with the latest update on the additional steps we at Penn will take in dealing with this unprecedented challenge, guided by current data and expert advice. We will continue to communicate with you and update our plans as new data and evidence emerges. Our primary goals, as always, are carrying out our educational, research and clinical care missions while ensuring the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors.
