Last week (July 10), I informed you that we were paying close attention to the COVID-19 pandemic locally and nationally. I also shared with you the actions the University is taking to provide a healthy and safe space for students, faculty, staff and visitors on campus to work, learn, grow and teach.
We continue to work regularly with the state and local health departments, while following CDC guidance and our expert medical partners at UPMC.
Given the quickly changing circumstances of the pandemic as well as student and faculty questions and comments, we have made significant revisions to our plans for on-campus learning for the Fall 2020 semester. Please pay close attention to the letter from our Assistant Provost, Dr. Jonas Prida.
