Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information and Updates
FALL 2020 QUARTER
Our campus remains open but ONLY remotely, and we remain available via phone (703) 663-8088, online, or email from 9 AM to 6 PM Monday-Friday.
Over the course of the last two quarters, we have digitally transformed the way we learn, study, and work. Your safety and well-being continue to be our top priority as we navigate these difficult times. We are closely monitoring the latest COVID-19 guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as state and federal guidelines and are undertaking measures to help safeguard the health of our students, faculty, and staff.
With the continuing spread of the novel coronavirus, all classes continue to be taught online until December 31, 2020. Consistent with the current recommendations of public health authorities, the goal of this measure is to minimize the need to gather in large groups and spend prolonged time in close proximity with each other in our classrooms to limit the potential exposure to, and spread of, COVID-19.
Please be advised that remote classes are to be attended the full length of the class meeting. Attendance is taken during each class. We know it is challenging to attend a course remotely for the duration of an onsite class meeting, but it is a requirement.
Please remember that the continued health and safety of our CalUMS-VA community is a shared responsibility. Even as public health restrictions ease, we have an obligation to each other to help reduce the spread and stop any resurgence of COVID-19. CalUMS-VA will do our part, and we ask you to commit to doing the same.
As always, thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate the complexities of this “new normal.” We are available to support you via email or phone during normal operating hours. Please let us know if we can help.
We encourage you to visit the CDC’s website for the most up-to-date information available.
Should you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
Please stay safe and healthy!
