Dear Georgetown Law Community:
As you may be aware, over the past several days the University has identified a cluster of COVID-19 cases among students living in the neighborhoods around main campus—most of whom are Georgetown undergraduates. As a result, the University made the decision to limit activities on main campus for two weeks, through February 15. A message was sent to the main campus community last night addressing this situation. While this does not directly impact the Law campus, it is a good reminder to stay vigilant and continue to follow all COVID-19 health guidelines.
The off-campus undergraduate cases have not caused us to change our campus plans. This recent outbreak has been connected to small indoor gatherings involving people from different households and not through any classroom or campus activities. The number of cases in DC as a whole has been decreasing over the past two weeks. The Law Center’s previously announced plans are designed to minimize the chance of on-campus transmission.
Of course there are many variables, which we continue to monitor. The health and safety of our community remains our primary concern and we will continue to track the situation and update our plans if necessary.
