The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many changes to the way we learn, live, work, and share in our community. The RIT Ready Newsletter is designed to help you plan and stay organized in this evolving environment by sharing the latest information you need to stay safe, healthy, productive, and engaged.
We understand that despite RIT’s safety protocols, RIT cannot guarantee a COVID-free environment. We all play a role in keeping our RIT community healthy and safe against the spread of COVID-19. This alert level system will enable RIT to respond quickly to rapidly evolving health conditions. And it is up to each member of the RIT community to wear a mask in public, wash hands frequently, and watch your physical distance.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, signed into law on March 27, 2020, created the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (“HEERF”) for distribution to colleges and universities to help offset costs to students and institutions resulting from campus disruptions due to the coronavirus. CARES Act Emergency Grants have been fully distributed.
