The Chancellor believes this is a prudent policy under the current circumstances and would like all universities and agencies in the System to adopt the same policy.
Additionally, the CDC has recommended halting gatherings of 50 or more people for the next eight weeks. This is consistent with our current policy other than length of time. The Chancellor wants you to abide by the CDC guidance beginning as soon as practical.
