College leaders are meeting regularly to discuss the latest updates and will be making further decisions and announcements, as needed, over the next few days

In the meantime, please follow the Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) guidelines for keeping yourself safe, including utilizing teleconferencing when possible, following careful hygiene directions, and staying home if you are sick or not feeling well.
