PLEASE NOTE: Norwich University has no known cases of coronavirus on campus at this time. All spring semester courses will be remote effective Monday, March 23, 2020.
Since our last University-wide communication on March 3, 2020, the number of national coronavirus (COVID-19) cases continues to rise. While we are not aware of any cases at Norwich University or in Vermont, the safety of the Norwich University and surrounding community is our primary concern. I write to share with you the proactive steps we are taking. Note that this guidance is subject to change as the situation is rapidly evolving. You can find updates and resources on the university’s website.
During Spring Break, please be mindful to follow CDC guidelines for Preventing COVID-19 Spread in Communities found here and check your email regularly for any updates from the University.
On March 1, 2020, the Center for Disease Prevention and Control released a guidance to Institutions of Higher Education with students participating in exchange or study abroad programs recommending that they consider postponing or cancelling their study abroad programs. The full guidance can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/student-foreign-travel.html
I wanted to be the first to inform you that should you wish to postpone or cancel your international Spring Break trip, the International Center will do all we can to support your decision to do so.
