UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
March 20, 2020
On behalf of UW-River Falls, I am writing again with more important campus updates.
I know that your Spring Break next week will not be at all what you anticipated just a few weeks ago. Above all, as cases of COVID-19 in Wisconsin, Minnesota and beyond continue to sharply increase, I want you to be safe. I encourage you to follow the guidance of public health experts at the federal and state level. Do not travel, limit gatherings to under 10 people, maintain safe distances of six feet apart, wash your hands frequently, disinfect high touch areas, etc. If you do visit or actually now live in an area that has been determined to have widespread community transmission of COVID-19, please follow the 14-day recommended self-quarantine and self-monitoring guidance.
Challenging times can bring out the best in good people, and I know that our campus community – now physically separated over many miles – will be at its best in the days ahead.
Stay safe and stay healthy, Falcons.
Dean Van Galen, Ph.D.
