RE:                  COVID-19


Hoping each of you are well during these unprecedented times.

I wanted you to know that we are very aware of the risks of returning to campus or clinical settings related to the unpredictability of transmission of COVID-19.

We wanted to assure you that UMass Dartmouth, and in particular the College of Nursing and Health Sciences (CNHS), will adhere to CDC guidelines and follow the recommendations of our Federal and State government officials and local health officials.

This prevention effort is a collective and unified effort to help you be and stay safe. UMass Dartmouth and CNHS will do its part, but everyone has an obligation to do their part and help us with this goal.

Wishing you well and hoping you will stay healthy and safe.
