Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

I am writing to provide you with an important notice of change to San Francisco and Silicon Valley campus operations in response to the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Following guidance and recommendations informed by the San Francisco Department of Public Health and the Santa Clara County Department of Public Health, and to ensure educational continuity, Northeastern is making the following operational changes to the San Francisco and Silicon Valley campuses, effective Monday, March 9, 2020:

Faculty should reach out to program directors to plan course delivery. Students with questions should contact WeCare at 617-373-7591 or via email at wecare@northeastern.edu.

The university remains in close communication with public health agencies and experts. As conditions change and new public health agency guidance is issued, we will update the campus community accordingly.

In the meantime, I encourage you to continue to check the university’s COVID-19 website for general health information and changes to university programs and policies.

Thank you for your assistance as we work to ensure business and educational continuity during this challenging time.
