Campus Life - Feb. 12: Message to parents and families

February 12, 2020

Dear Parent,

Emory University is committed to the health and safety of our community. Our Student Health Services team continues to provide support for the general medical needs of students, while also closely monitoring Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) developments. Emory has no reported cases of the virus, and the United States remains classified as low-risk.

Nonetheless, the university has systems in place to monitor, identify, and swiftly respond if the need arises. And, of course, we are committed to keeping the Emory community updated as additional information becomes available.

Students who arrived in the United States prior to February 3 and have traveled in China within the previous 14 days should contact Student Health Services at 404.727.7551 for a risk screening, if they have not already done so. All students arriving after February 3 are being evaluated and monitored by the Georgia Department of Public Health, if they are allowed entry.

For more information, see Campus Life Coronavirus updates.

Below are additional resources that you and your students may find helpful during this monitoring period.
