COVID-19 Updates

March 31, 2020


CTS Students, Faculty, Staff, and Friends:

Following the guidance of government officials, we will change our approach to avoiding the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19):

  • All CTS classes will be held in an online-only format for the remainder of the spring semester.
  • The CTS building will be closed until at least May 1, and all events until then will be cancelled or rescheduled.
  • CTS staff members should continue to work remotely until at least May 1, unless otherwise directed by their supervisor.

We will monitor the situation closely, and we may extend the above measures to later in the spring if necessary. As soon as we make any decisions, we will communicate to the CTS community. Additional details on academics can be found in Academic Matters.

Please note that there have been no reported cases of Coronavirus involving CTS students, faculty, staff, or visitors. 

For questions regarding:

Thank you for your cooperation with these plans. Stay tuned for more information on how we can care for one another in the weeks ahead. My wish is that all of you remain healthy and centered during these uncertain times.
