Based on evolving federal guidance and statewide mitigation plans announced by Gov. Tom Wolf around the growing coronavirus pandemic and the global efforts underway to stop its spread, Penn State has extended virtual course delivery into the summer. Additionally, spring commencement ceremonies were held virtually on May 9, while the University continues to explore options for celebrating the achievements of our students with in-person events at a later date. These decisions align with recommendations from the federal government that call for restricting of all gatherings of more than 10 people. Visit this link to read more about these changes.

Penn State health and safety officials are closely monitoring a global outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a new strain of coronavirus. As symptoms of coronavirus can be very similar to the flu, which is active across Pennsylvania at this time, Penn State health officials recommend that anyone with flu-like symptoms contact their health care provider for an evaluation.
