A note from the center – closures

Image from the Centers for Dis Control showing two theoretical curves of future cases of COVID-19.  The first curve is sharp and easily passes a line of maximum hospital resources.  It represents what would happen if there is business as usual.  The second curve is what should happen with social distancing, and shows the cases spread out over a longer time, but within the capabilities of health care resources.

The above chart shows how measures such as social distancing
and business closures can help healthcare professions manage care during this pandemic.

This decision was made with careful consideration for the health and wellness of all our valued community members, particularly the more vulnerable, as well as our communal responsibility to do whatever we can to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The following Campus Partners will be closed during this period:
