Dear Students,

In light of current events related to COVID-19, you may have questions regarding CityLab: Berlin’s current response and policies. At the moment, CLB will continue to follow its normal semester calendar and schedule. Rest assured however that we are in regular contact with local authorities and the home campus in Northfield and will continue to monitor the situation closely. Any changes in policy or relevant information will be communicated via email and WhatsApp. Please check often for updates.

As you may already know, Dr. Brian Bradke has resigned from his position at Norwich University and will no longer be able to lead the trip to Italy as planned. Dr. Nadia Al-Aubaidy has graciously agreed to serve as the substitute Trip Leader. The course title, content, and credits will remain the same. Our goal is also to keep the costs the same as well. The most recent estimate for the entire program including airfare and meals was $5,275.

On February 26, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a Level 2 Travel Health Alert for Italy, recommending travelers practice enhanced precautions. The full advisory can be found here:  https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices/alert/coronavirus-italy

As a residential campus with a global reach, Norwich University is closely monitoring the worldwide spread of COVID-19 or the Coronavirus and its potential impact in Northfield and in locations where our students are studying away and abroad. We are working with the appropriate authorities and have access to local, national, and international resources to ensure that we can respond as quickly as possible to ensure the health and safety of our students wherever they may be.

At this time, the University does not plan to cancel any of our study abroad/away programs or require any study abroad/ away student to return to the Northfield campus. As is the case with most U.S. colleges and universities, Norwich University relies on guidance from the U.S. State Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to determine when to suspend or cancel programs. Should you wish to return to campus out of concern or fear, the university will do all we can to support your decision and ensure that you have access to adequate resources to do so.

Campus Community,

According to the Vermont Department of Health, there have been no positive tests for the coronavirus in Vermont.  Here at Norwich University, there have been approximately 30+ students that have been quarantined for the flu and have been provided medical face masks by the Student Health Center. These face masks are allowed to be worn with Corps of Cadets uniforms.  

The Deputy State Epidemiologist & Epidemiology Program Chief at Vermont Department of Health recommends that Norwich University should not make medical masks generally available to the Norwich community. If an individual is seen by a medical provider, they may be provided a face mask, which is certainly allowed to be worn on campus.

Campus Community,

Individuals at-risk for the coronavirus include those with respiratory symptoms who have either traveled to the Wuhan region of China, or have contact with someone suspected of having the coronavirus.  At this time, we have not identified anyone who this would apply to.  With ongoing consultation with our Student Health Center's Medical Director, our medical team will monitor recommendations and institute them as appropriate for the NU community.

​Campus Community,

Norwich University, with information provided by the Vermont Department of Health and the CDC, is monitoring the international outbreak of a respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus (2019-nCov). This was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.

The college is not aware of any students, faculty or staff who may have been exposed to the coronavirus. We will share developments should they apply to our college community or region.

​Effective Wednesday, March 25, 2020, the Kreitzberg Library, Norwich University Archives & Special Collections, and Sullivan Museum and History Center will be closed to in-person use until further notice.

It is with great disappointment that I inform you that Norwich University will be cancelling the on-campus 2020 Residency Conference scheduled for Monday, June 22nd to Friday, June 26th.
