We’re taking all of the recommended and necessary precautions and then some: But if you are sick, or believe you may have come into contact with someone who is infected, then stay at home and we’ll update you as best we can.

If the hysteria leads to a full lockdown then we’ll review the situation regarding classes if, and when, that happens. In the meantime, we’ll keep you up to speed with any new developments.
