We recognize that the concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19) are escalating across the tri-state region and creating anxious moments for our community. We recognize that this is an anxiety-inducing time for many people both here and abroad. It has come to our attention that there are a few topics that require clarification:
It is important as a community that we avoid contributing to the spreading of rumors. As such, we wish to remind you that any important alerts or updates will be communicated via St. John’s email and posted to the web, which includes frequently asked questions. It is critical that all New Yorkers exercise caution, but also focus on the facts and guidance being shared by local, state and federal authorities and that we calibrate those facts and information in real-time.
The University has setup a COVID-19 page to post communications and up-to-date information regarding the University’s measures to ensure the health and safety of the members of our community at www.stjohns.edu/coronavirus. The safety and well-being of our students and the entire University community are of primary importance to the leadership team at St. John's.
