UW and Coronavirus preparations

I encourage everyone to read President Cauce’s message here, and to carefully consider her suggestions for action. As you will see from the President’s comments, reasonable caution is encouraged, and overreaction or lack of compassion is discouraged. Know that the state and local health teams, including a wide range of UW resources (including FAQs) are working in close coordination to assure safety for everyone.

New information continues to emerge daily. Be alert to news, and avoid spreading rumors or acting on information from non-official sources. Listen, read, check, and double-check. Don’t fall for online scams that claim to offer potions, pills, injections, or any other unproven “remedy.” A dose of common sense will serve you better.

This is an opportunity for our community to work together, for everyone’s benefit.
