At this time, there are no known cases of COVID-19 in Waterford, CT, however the State of Connecticut has declared both a public health emergency and a civil preparedness emergency. For the most up-to-date information in this rapidly evolving health situation, please refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
In this period of heightened vigilance, the O’Neill has formed a COVID-19 Working Group that will regularly meet in response to this developing situation until further notice. We are taking proactive steps and prepared to adjust planned activities accordingly based on guidance and recommendations from local, state, and federal officials. The safety of students, faculty and staff for all of our programs is our paramount concern. Please see the Program Specific Updates section below for more details on specific programs, events, and impacts.
As we work together to address a myriad of concerns regarding the health and safety of our community, we expect all staff, students, and faculty will remain vigilant against the acts of bias, discrimination, and harassment which have emerged globally in the last several weeks due to fear and misinformation about the virus.
