According to the email, Bradley’s operation will remain open. All university-sponsored travel will be suspended until further notice; food service will operate on a limited basis; Health Services will remain open; and faculty and staff are expected to report to work as under regular conditions.
In the email, the university also encourages students return home to their permanent address beginning on March 14, and said will work with those students who need to remain on campus.
All large campus events, with 25 people and more, will also be canceled between now and April 12.
