Coronavirus update: Feedback and dedicated email

RIT continues to closely monitor the outbreak of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). This is a rapidly changing situation. For this reason, our university-wide task force has established a dedicated email account to receive your feedback and questions at The email address is located on our official RIT Coronavirus website. We also advise you to regularly review the frequently asked questions section on the site, which are updated as necessary.

Questions and feedback via email will be directed to the appropriate task force member and responded to in a timely fashion.

As you will recall from President Munson’s March 5th message to the community, we are asking community members to self-quarantine if they are returning from the countries identified by the CDC as “Level 3” (currently China, South Korea, Italy, and Iran), as well as cities, locales, and/or events that are deemed high risk.

We have learned that two RIT students traveling in high-risk areas did reach out to the RIT Student Health Center and are under self-quarantine for 14 days. There are no signs of illness and the students are taking preventative measures. We want to reiterate that self-quarantine means you are well, but taking precautions. The protocol is used to separate and restrict the movement of well persons who may have been exposed to a communicable disease to see if they become ill. There is no reason to be alarmed by this latest development.

When students, faculty, and staff return from spring break, we will have the latest information on which regions of the United States and the world that have been most recently affected. Please continue to stay educated and prepared.
