Yale is carefully monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and taking bold and swift actions to flatten the curve of the rate of infection while maintaining central services to support education and critical research. Faculty and staff across Yale are also coordinating with the City of New Haven and the State of Connecticut to care for the sick, to support one another, and to share research findings, best practices, and strategic planning.

The university’s response is based on the guidance of Yale experts and of local, state, and federal officials, and follows key principles:

  • Yale’s actions will be guided by considerations for the health and safety of faculty, staff, students, and neighbors.
  • Decisions about health and safety made by the university in the context of COVID-19 will be evidence-based and data-driven to the extent possible. 
  • Decisions should sustain – and advance whenever possible – the quality of teaching and research at Yale.

Please monitor Yale’s COVID-19 webpage for real-time updates on university policies and guidance.
