Campus life brings people together – in classrooms, dormitories, dining halls, and at events and activities. All this togetherness creates many opportunities for respiratory illnesses, such as coronavirus (COVID-19), to spread.
Here’s a graphic explanation of how elimination of gatherings reduced the spread.
That is why University of Mary Washington is doing its part to help halt the spread of this virus by moving classes online and cancelling all on-campus activities and events until May 15.
Our priorities are the health and well-being of our community members as well as academic progression for our students. We remain committed to keeping the campus community informed and up to date about the best way to stay healthy as this very fluid situation evolves.
