March 16 COVID-19 update for the CMU community

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we are always considering what is best for the health and safety of our students, staff, faculty, and the communities that we serve. It is important to CMU to play its part in keeping our campus safe.

The Emergency Operations Committee and CMU Administration continue to collaborate with other post secondary institution and health experts while closely monitoring COVID-19 developments.

This unprecedented, complex, and evolving situation will challenge each member of the CMU community—students, staff, and faculty. We ask for, and we greatly appreciate, your contribution to this collective effort.

The CMU campus will remain open to students, staff, and faculty. Students may choose to work from home or from student spaces on campus. Marpeck Commons and the North Side are only accessible through proximity cards. When meeting with instructors or fellow students, observe social distancing practices (two metres distance).
