Other important things to remember:

For students whose professors are insisting on having in-person final exams, please contact the department chair and the Dean of the academic division. The same is true for students whose PI’s/mentors/advisors are requiring them to continue reporting to work.

For students concerned about being asked to leave campus, HDH has committed to staying fully operational. Students may use their own discretion, but our on-campus housing will not be closing.

Students should reconsider traveling for spring break, especially those who may be leaving the country. While we are taking swift and drastic action, the possibility of returning may be impeded by the changing regulations.

We are resilient; we will persist.
